It was how I lived until I was well into my adult years.
The bitterest creature under heaven is the wife who discovers that her husband's bravery is only bravado, that his strength is only a uniform, that his power is but a gun in the hands of a fool.
Pearl S. Buck

Back when I was in the Corps, when I saw that, I was amazed by it.
