Physical and Emotional Burdens

By Donivan Justice and Tavian Salvador

Fact #1

Physical and emotional burdens are influenced by each other: physical burdens remind the soldiers of their emotional burdens, and their emotional burdens affect the physical burdens (which in this case, would be the actual items the soldiers carry).

Fact #2

Physical burdens, like losing a leg, can lead to emotional burdens like PTSD and nightmares of the event.

Novel Prediction

The book is going to be about the Vietnam War and how the soldiers not only fighting physically but emotionally as well. As well as the outlying effects of the burdens these soldiers carry.
