Mesmerizing Photographs Of Soldiers' Faces Before And After A War

While the emotional repercussions of war aren't easy to measure, the before, during, and after pictures of soldiers who have seen combat tell a pretty unsettling story.

And, the number is STILL increasing! :)

They joined for a righteous reason ONLY TO BE ORDERED to fight in wars they may or may not believe in.

I can't be angry with you.  I feel very sorry for you that you can't see and understand their "intent" of joining the Military.

by your black and white thinking then the ones discarded on 9-11-01 deserved to be thrown away as garbage for the justification of war based on greed and power and not on a single shred of truth, perhaps because they too knew the risks of being employed in high rise buildings susceptable to structural failure or terrorist strike or screwing up as in the ones who perished when the Empire state building was struck by a military bomber 50 yrs before , because they knew the risks and although it usually doesn't occur because they worked in an environment is placing blame on them correct ????    .....  weve been manipulated as a society and assured our leaders would never, could never , and would always be Lawful and legal and moral above reproach.....humanity has forgotten the ones who gain regardless of out come , loose nothing and in many cases are the ones who promote blind faith and blind trust...... I understand your point it needs to stop, however your post seemed very cold , yet you elude to not the reasons why .......peace and love for all of us screwed up human forms.

Bill, don't waste your breath.  He has no idea about loving our country; and the dessre to fight to make sure another country is free.  He is one of those people who live in their own cocoon and don't give a damn about anyone but himself.

You are 100% right.

There was a book of photos published in Germany after WW1 that was infinitely more hard hitting than these.  It was an antiwar book. It showed the horrible injuries suffered by the soldiers, horrible injuries in detail, that are usually never even seen by the public.  I can not remember the name of that book. Maybe someone here can.

Its all in their eyes.

I was just looking at a pic of my brother when he was first in the marines.  He looked so handsome and full of potential.  He's dead now.  All gone. 

I am so sorry, Sharon.  God Bless You.

I wish I could say something to ease your pain.  I know there is nothing I can say to make the pain go away.

I was thinking about you. I know you went through a deeply sad time.  I know you know this as I do

Some people don't realize that they MUST allow themselves to "completely" grieve.  Some try to act brave.  That only serves to make the pain worse and the healing process delayed.

Folks who have been 'down range' are best in making a statement. 9 out of 11 show no signs of problems other than 'reality'... people need to butcher their own critter and eat it then get back to the pictures, the grocery store has made many out of touch with reality, as with many other things in this 'I want it now' mentality that has been psyop'd on us to keep many weak, distracted and dependant, reality clears up your mind... humanity has been bad since the beginning, human nature does not change, technology does, USA is burning like Rome did, Rome was a republic that turned into a big government control everything and distract people so as most to not comprehend the destruction around them, many of the wars were for reasons we were never told of and lied to for cover from the truth. Folks should get familular with reality so they can deal with situations on a clear mind. AND the light conditions controlling the pupils..stop dreaming
