Sebastian Junger

Jan 2014

Junger speaks about the experiences he has had alongside of American soldiers in Restrepo and the observations that he has made when war creates a strong connection amongst them. The author poses that many soldiers end up missing war due to the isolation that they experience upon returning home.

Compared to that, war, psychologically, in some ways, is easy, compared to that kind of alienation. That’s why they miss it, and that’s what we have to understand and in some ways fix in our society.
