I know so many Veterans who are the most tender, feeling, helpful, wonderful beings on earth. Like myself, I have come to know them and understand them as Empaths. Trying to find a way to give, help, belong and give to others and this world. Military miss advertises leading them into military service, I think they know exactly who their advertising appeals to which is Empaths. We never really fit in and always driven to end the suffering of others we feel inside of us. PTSD is worse in those of us who are empaths. It causes us so much confusion between how everything makes us feel (truth) and what we are told and see. Makes us crazy trying to suppress this amazing ability we have that not many have or know how to use.
