I thought the book was good. I had a friend come back from Iraq and he was never the same. the effects of his experiences were long term. No matter what the war or conflict, the soldiers are put under great emotional distress. He feels that his depression was caused by the war and is still receiving mental health care. He is bargaining with the veterans administration trying to get them to provide more mental health care and disability payments. The books author seemed to have alot of down time and talked about all of the drinking that they did. I did not like the fact that our soldiers were drinking all of the time during serious occasions. The movie was pretty good.
