When I was little, battle damage was something cool. Tanks could be crushed and magically spring back into shape, scars would appear with hot water only to heal when the water dried. They were rough and tumble and could and did survive anything. I don’t think battle damage is so cool now. The scars of war are very real and much more than physical and they can’t be fixed with the push of a button or a dry cloth. I feel for those that currently carry those scars and I admire those that put themselves in harm’s way and risk those scars so that the rest of us don’t have to.
