"I was in Afghanistan the night Bin Laden was killed and we asked, is the war over? Can we pack up and leave? ... Our brothers and sisters are in a war, not with just the enemy but with themselves. This year, more soldiers took their own lives than the enemy did."

Courage to Resist will of course be following Micah's situation.
