The poem where the the veteran is at the Vietnam memorial (I don't remember the name) was a really good one. It was very emotional and just all around good. I think the things he saw in the mirror were flashbacks about when he was in the war. I also have somewhat a personal connection to this poem, kinda. I have a friend who was sent to Iraq and stepped on an IED and got both his legs blown off, completely. He also is now blind in both eyes. He had PTSD for a while after he get home. Also goes to show that people who have PTSD and suffered a lot in the war can also live out the rest of their lives once they get over it, if they ever do. My friend is now married and has a son who is almost two years old.
