An Army Vet Is Using Tumblr To Put Military Life Into Perspective
"Knowing you have someone to count on..."
JustWarThings is a Tumblr that juxtaposes the reality of military service with "inspirational" images that circulate on the Internet.
After returning home from Iraq, Army veteran Casey Tylek began this project as a way to combat stress and to express the common feelings that many veterans feel today.
Casey tells BuzzFeed:
Going to college at UMass quickly revealed a disconnect between myself and my classmates. I'm very proud of my service, and I realize that very few people these days have served. So I started this collection of images to invoke a wide array of memories or emotions. Some hit and some don't, and some seem to resonate more with people than others.
