I want to start off by thanking you for your service. It takes such a selfless and loving heart to put your life on the line for your country and we will always be indebted to and grateful for you for doing so. Thank you.

Though you did come back from your time in service, I’m sure there are times when it feels like a different person came back than the one that was sent out. Adjusting to your “normal” life when you finally did return was probably filled with struggles you had never foreseen. Trying to fit the changed version of yourself into your old traditions and relationships can be impossible, and I’m so sorry that you’ve ended up on your own for much of it.

Though the isolation may feel unending and sometimes spirit-crushing, know that you are not alone. There are so many people who care for you, including every one of us here at HeartSupport. Your life has made such a difference for every single person in your country, and it still doe to this day. There has never been and will never be another you. You have the unique opportunity to change the world in a way that only YOU can. Though you may feel alone in your struggles, know that you are so loved and so cared for. Struggling is part of the human condition and something we all have to go through. I commend you for opening up about your trials and seeking help- that is always the first step to healing. Keep talking. Keep reaching out. Keep sharing your unique story- you never know who will be impacted by it. You mean so much and your life has so much worth.

Thank you again for your service and for your openness. We are here for you if you ever need to talk more. All the love.
