Dear Abby, Dear Abby, I have been at war for almost a year now and I feel like my morals are escaping me slowly. My close friend died only 3 months into my deployment and every sense I haven’t felt the same. Every time i am in a battle and i see another person die there is no emotion in my body, just merely me trying to stay alive. I fear that i am no longer human and when i go home my family will not be able to recognize me for who I am. Dear Soldier, There is NO reason to be afraid of who you are! War is a harsh tough space, but it is where heroes are made, and it is where your pride for your wonderful country is put to the test. These feelings you are having are completely normal. Its like jumping into a cold pool. At first it is scary, but then it is fine. You are past the worst part, and once you come home your family will not see you as some monster, but as a hero for their country and they will love you for it. Dear Abby, Why are we sending out soldiers to die on the battlefield when we can solve these problems with peace? My son just left to join the Imperial Army, even after i begged and pleaded him not to join, a few months ago and yet I still worry that one day i will get a phone call that he is dead. Did i do the right thing finally letting him go to battle or should I have pleaded more and kept him at home? Dear Mother, You have every right to be worried for your son going out into battle. Its a scary place, even for people not in it. But our Imperial Army is the BEST at training soldiers so that those phone calls home never need to happen. Your boy will return home happier and prouder than ever.
