"I have plenty of friends who killed themselves or tried to kill themselves," he said. "The newfound support is very welcome." Stoddart said there has been a culture shift in how soldiers and veterans deal with the stress of war. "It's OK to talk about what you went through," he said. "That was not always the case." Stoddart said he went through a lot during his service in and around Fallujah in 2003 and 2004.
Dale Schindler had quite an adventure when he traveled outside of North Dakota for the first time as an 18-year-old in 1952. "I trained at Fort Riley, Kansas, then on to Fort Lewis, Washington, and then on to South Korea," he said. "We got within a mile or so of South Korea and we beach landed. From there we were loaded on to trucks and trains to Seoul." Schindler's combat service in Korea makes him part of one of the older groups of American veterans. Schindler is 82, and many Korean War veterans are in their mid- to late-80s.
