The grief of never having a father, brother, friend or even now, mother or sister never return home from war is a frightening thought. While most come home, many memorials in Europe and around the world hold the sacred remains of brave Americans who fought overseas during WWI and beyond. Thousands of our fallen rest in these offshore locations where their sacrifice for America and the rest of the world is remembered with honor. Grief counselors should encourage the visiting of these sites for those who still experience the pain of unresolved grief of no return.

“Carol Malone never knew her father. She was born in 1942, and her father, U.S. Army Sgt. Victor J. Hubany, was killed in 1944, before he’d been home from war to meet his little girl. She used to watch hours of World War II footage, looking for a glimpse of him.”

Grief is an emotion that is extremely important. It is a natural emotion to loss or suffering. It is beneficial because it allows the mind to heal and adjust. It also allows others to understand the pain one is experiencing. Yet the loss of someone or something is far from beneficial. Grief merely as a reaction helps one overcome the loss and readjust. Grief comes in many forms and types of reactions. Some reactions are normal while other trajectories lead one down a road of complications. These types of grief can be concomitant, delayed, masked, extreme or result in depression. These pathological reactions to loss usually require counseling or medication. The reality most people experience healthy grief reactions and show resiliency in their return. This does not mean the grief vanishes but it does mean one is able to focus, adjust and conform their new life story to the loss. This is healthy grief and while the loss is horrible, the emotion itself is beneficial in a fallen world.
