    use to wake up screaming in the middle of night in a cold sweat.  One night he broke down completely and told me some of things he experienced, he was a paratrooper, and honestly I was only 18 years old at the time and it truly was heartbreaking what he told me.  I knew there were terrible things that happen in the world, I grew up with many Holocaust survivors around me, but what he told me was just as horrible.  He was also upset that they did little debriefing when he returned, maybe a twenty minute talk, and that was all he got.

      I have no contact with him anymore because our relationship was terribly destructive and ended about 22 years ago, but i spent 12 years living with someone who had a ticking bomb in the back of his head, and one time he woke up in the middle of the night and pinned me down in a clothes closet with his hands around my neck, and I could tell he wasn't in America just then, and I'm just glad I survived that night.
