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.

 – Samara Freemark

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.
