Just as you might remember a birthday or an anniversary, a wounded soldier will never forget the day his or her life was forever changed on the battlefield. In nearly any society, those who have come into harm’s way in the service of their country have long been honored for their sacrifices. Parades welcome them home, governments award them service medals and, for a time, they have the collective thanks of a grateful nation. But societies soon forget, and the sacrifices of the brave few are left behind, relegated to the pages of history. For the soldiers, however, they cannot forget because time does not, in fact, heal all wounds.
