"For centuries, we have been comprehending war as a three part process - training, combat, coming home - when in fact it is four. The fourth part is the residue - the recovery- the time when the price of all that has occurred in the name of victory or defeat must be paid.
If you reflect on countries throughout history, even when war was declared over, there was a period whereby the countries had to rebuild and recover from the devastation that war imposed. War does not end with the last shot fired - it ends when the state of recovery morphs into the safety and comfort found in a new sense of normality.
For our heroes, following the celebration of being home, the fourth part of war begins. The personal rebuild and recovery. The journey beyond the experience of war and back into a comfortable life at home. While there is a tried and tested method for each of the first three parts of war - the fourth part is where the obstacles exist, as there is no practical system to enable the transition.
If you imagine two precipices with no bridge between them by which to move freely from one to the other, this would give you a visual of what our combat troops face when they return. A bridge must be properly constructed by all of us from ordinary citizen to Capitol Hill to the military to the VA - so that no combat veteran is left to contemplate how to reach the future that awaits - or left to take a courageous leap over the void where he or she will either make it to the other side or perish in the fall."
