I dont see a post here that i disagree with at all .

Some other things iv seen from those that were in combat .

My father was an avid hunter . Upon his return from combat he never hunted again . He had no issues with hunting or those that did but he never picked up a gun again .

There will be things he will and wont talk about , its his way of dealing with it .

I was not in the military I was a civlian officer , I my self talk of funny things that happened here and there , the things i dont wish to remember are vivid in my mind but i dont tell stories of those things . My father was the same way about WWII stories .

I have known one Nam vet that was the opposite , he spoke mostly of the worst shit he seen - done .

as well stated in this post its different for every one .
