  • He sounds depressed which is understandable. Be supportive and keep in mind that he may come back home with PTSD.

  • Keep supporting him and make sure he knows you're there for him. Maybe see about getting him some counseling when he comes home.

  • :(
    i held back saying this cuz i didnt want you to take it the wrong way, but please don't
    could you remind him of how he used to be and sort of show him that its his work that has gotten to him?
    it makes me sad for soldiers whose lives are affected so much by their work and understandably so
    i have ptsd, not from war, but i sought counseling. i know guys are more reluctant to do so, but have you asked him if he would be willing? im sorry
    also, maybe send him uplifting words or quotes?
