Army Tweets 'How Has Serving Impacted You?' Gets Thousands of Responses About the Horrors of War

"My cousin committed suicide while on duty at the armory after coming home from a tour abroad."


On Friday, the United States Army asked Twitter users how the service impacted their lives, likely as part of a Memorial Day campaign.

The sad responses are a poignant and timely reminder of the toll of war. Appropriate for the holiday, but probably not what the Army P.R. team intended.
