Sgt. Jonathan Cuha served as an infantryman in the Army from 2005 through 2009, during which he was deployed to Iraq.
He’s a reservist now, and completed a two-year pre-med degree before applying to universities near his home in Salem, Ore. He wrote about the difficulties of being in school after spending years in the military.

The Army was everything I ever knew. It was my whole life.
I was lost when I got out three years ago, and I still am in some ways. My body is broken, my mind is stressed with the memories of my loved and lost, and I have no friends because it means nothing to have them. What is a “friend” after you have had brothers who would and have died for you?
I am a 26-year-old college student, where my classmates are 18. I am just starting my life, after I have lived a complete one already.
