Something really stood out to me in watching the the short film "The Marlboro Marine''.What James Blake Miller experienced in the Iraq War greatly affected him. He struggled a lot with PSTD. He talked about recurring bad dreams, that he constantly thinks about the war and became suicidal.
I learned a lot about Hobos in reading Holding On. I never realised that the Hobos had a culture. They were men who traveld the counrty looking for work in exchange for food or otheritems paid for in trade.
