Just read your article on missing war. You nailed it. The intensity, simplicity, and comraderie of that life is like color photography, while normal life upon returning home feels grayscale.
Reading your stuff feels like I’m talking to a friend.
I read an article years back called “I miss my gun”that captures this like your article does. https://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a26372/esq0307essay/
I’ll read some more soon. Thanks!
