Conflict and war was an experience he never encountered or embraced before. The realization of war was becoming a reality. When Harold Krebs returned home, victory celebrations had already occurred and the community was trying to return to the normalcy of life. “People seemed to think it was rather ridiculous for Krebs to be getting back so late, years after the war was over...At first Krebs, who had been at Belleau Wood, Soissons, the Champagne, St. Mihiel…. did not want to talk about the war at all.”(Hemingway 187).
Saying that before my mother passed would get him nothing but grief from her, but that time has long faded from his memory. My mother loved this place, and she taught me to do the same. She always told me that I wouldn’t find a place like it in the world, and I never thought I would have to. The thing I will never forget is Aldridge Street. Aldridge Street was unnecessary, linking one side of Kent
He needed aid, but didn’t get it. The following day he died saving 12 soldiers, but he also cried about the fact he never saw his daughter grow up.

Sadly Nathan’s inability to provide his family with more right then wrong began when he was a soldier during World War II. There, Nathan escaped the Battaan Death March, and almost faced the death it brought. Because he escaped the fate of death the rest of his battalion, he views himself as a coward who is despised by God. He vows never to be a coward again and he devotes his life to saving as many souls as he can, through his missionary work. It becomes increasingly clear as the novel progresses, that Nathan is not brave but cowardly, and not a man selflessly devoted to a cause but a man devoted to nothing and no one but himself.
Concerning Lance’s name, I think that he wanted to reveal that a name is just a name and he has no relation to the family and doesn’t intend to either. I think he wanted to express his love for his family and friends and show his gratitude towards them for helping him through such a tough stage in his life, especially his mum. I think Lance just wanted to tell the world how happy he is now and that he survived a tough stage in his life, possibly wanting to reach out to other cancer patients to help them through their ordeal
Night Journal Another day at camp; I wondeSr how this day is going to be. I thought about my family while I was working. I miss them so much and can not wait to see them again; well if I ever do. I tried not to show the people in the camp that I was hurt and how I miss my family. I didn’t want the SS to make fun of me or beat me for it.
Konner November 15, 2011 ANT 102 Operation Homecoming I will say right from the start that war is not something I’m fond of – as I’m sure is the case for many people – but I know it is necessary for this countries survival. There’s no mind like that of a soldier’s mind during war time. I found the different perspectives of war very interesting. The only thing each solder seemed to agree on was how little they were talked about back here in America, and it’s true. I didn’t find it surprising at all to hear that soldiers write about what’s happening or maybe just write about anything at all to keep their sanity.
I got my favorite coffee and went to sit down at table. I was the only one at the café at the point. After I got the newspaper, I heard the door open. I just took a look because the noise caught my attention. When I saw who came through that door, I was amazed .
When George Rutaganda told him that “soon all the Tutsi would be dead”, Paul was in denial of the possibility. He continued to tell his wife that everything would be okay because that is what he believed. When the war was happening, Paul was still able to laugh with his wife because he was using a repression mechanism. Paul pushed everything about the war and deaths out of his head, which helped him adapt to the situation differently than the people around him. Carver, Scheier and Weintraub (1989), stated that coping strategies remain fixed for long period of time.
Numerous times he said that he was ready to die, but the nursing home decided to keep him alive, all the while he was suffering. He wanted an end to the pain and they did not give it to him. Now, I don’t dislike the nurses for doing their job, but I think that if he was ready to go, let him. He has since passed on, and times have been tough on my grandmother, there anniversary is coming up would have been 63 years of marriage in June, but we are all relived at the fact that he has no more pain, we all miss him, but we will get
