price of endless war is beyond calculation. As our wars continue to
morph and roll on, the costs -- financial, emotional, and in blood --
only pile up as the men and women who
have been welcomed home as if it were all over continue to be torn
apart. The nasty conclusion on the scales of moral injury: that our
endless conflicts may indeed have left our society, one that just can’t
stop itself from making war, among the casualties."
