    Soldiers Home Critical Analysis of "Soldier's Home": Before, During, and After the War (with bibliography) Many of the titles of Ernest Hemingway's stories are ironic, and can be read on a number of levels; Soldier's Home is no exception.

    "How do you return to the ‘real world when only other soldiers can understand how you've changed" (Swofford 12)? This is what almost all soldiers feel when they come home from the war. People question them on what happened while they were there and ask how many people did they kill when they were at war. Home just doesn't feel like home to them anymore. When the soldiers come home all they want to do is forget about everything that they have done until they are ready to talk about it. Diaz states

    Letter Home From a Soldier in Vietnam Dear Mom, I am doing great. Well…When I say great, I mean I'm as good as you can be over here. This place is like a giant valley of death, that's keeps getting filled with more dead American soldiers every day. We keep asking ourselves the question, why are we here?

    Loss of Self in Hemingway's Soldiers Home, Cather's Paul's Case, and Melville's Bartleby the Scrivener Hemingway's "Soldiers Home," Cather's "Paul's Case," and Melville's "Bartleby the Scrivener" all present a loss of self.

After these men have put their life on the line for the nation, any train of thought opposite of this would be absurd. Injury from the war is expected, but unfortunately, some of the blows these vets received were too harsh to bounce back from

    "liberation" of the Iraqi people is not the primary agenda behind the occupation, and preventing terrorism isn't cutting it as an excuse either. Iraq is a training camp and recruitment center for terrorists. We need to leave Iraq alone and send our soldiers home. American political leaders insisted we would wipe out those Iraqi terrorists and criminals in no time, but it didn't happen. Just like in Vietnam.
