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 .
I had a similar situation with my Brother-in-law Grandman. He really didn't want to talk about it, and wouldn't pick up a gun again either.
(He use to run the dozer that would do Mine cleanup, during Nam)
