Afghanistan

I'm sorry I had to appear when you got back from your tour. You needed the woman you loved when you left but I ravaged her system before she even knew I existed in her. I left her unable to properly care for you when you needed her the most. She beat me, but she lost you to another woman. She's so sad about this, you were the love of her life, but she bears you no blame. It was a long, difficult tour, followed by a long, difficult disease. And you were so torn apart. She hopes you've found happiness. She has found some peace. —Cancer
