Few headlines have the ability to bring so many people to their knees; few news stories can shake the very foundation of everything you stand for and everything you believe. The recent withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and the turmoil and tragic loss that followed, is one such event.
Civilians, veterans, and active-duty service members are having intense, unpleasant reactions to the events unfolding in Afghanistan. Such an emotional reaction to these tumultuous events does not need to be justified.
If you are part of the military community, it is normal to experience a more personal connection to these events. This connection may lead to feeling an enormous range of emotions, from grief to anger to confusion and anything and everything in between. But you do not have to suffer alone.
Your Service Was Not in Vain
If you served in Afghanistan, it is understandable that you may be questioning the purpose of your time overseas. If you sustained a physical or mental injury, the despair and frustration is likely to be amplified. Worse still, if you lost a battle buddy or a beloved friend or family member, it can be hard to grapple with the sense that it was all for nothing.
The truth is, selfless service is never performed in vain. Your courage – and that of your loved ones – still matters. It always will.
You Are Not Alone
It’s important to remember that you are not alone.
The current situation in Afghanistan is difficult to process, no matter your political party, nationality, religion, or military ties.
For twenty years, the United States has had a presence and a mission in Afghanistan, and it has quite suddenly ended. The end of anything after two whole decades is bound to have a massive impact on people everywhere.
