RE: The US Army Asked Twitter How Service Has Impacted People. The Answers Were Gut-Wrenching.
Sometimes, no matter how hard they try to keep the truth tightly controlled and out of public view, the truth breaks through in unexpected places. The army probably thought this campaign would be a simple and wholesome promotional tool, but it ended up blowing up in their face.
The truth about war and 'service' is so often hidden from us, it is SANITIZED behind slogans and cliches. We rarely hear the voices of these forgotten soldiers who have had their lives torn apart by the ravages of war. Images of soldiers coming home in body bags or of casualties abroad are never shown on corporate television and are highly censored.
Thanks for putting this on the blockchain before it gets removed from twitter.
More people need to know how war affects the people on the front lines. Lives are forever altered.
