After hell

Dorothy is a "collective of like-minded people working on unlike-minded ideas." Their message may be simple but brilliantly effective. Toy soldiers that take on a narrative that innocence protects you from. This soldiers have return from combat and are frozen each in there own fogotten state. .We always hear about the wars and combats but never the aftermath of a personal battle this people have to face on there own.

"The hell of war comes home. In July 2009 Colorado Springs Gazettea published a two-part series entitled “Casualties of War”. The articles focused on a single battalion based at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, who since returning from duty in Iraq had been involved in brawls, beatings, rapes, drunk driving, drug deals, domestic violence, shootings, stabbings, kidnapping and suicides. Returning soldiers were committing murder at a rate 20 times greater than other young American males. A seperate investiagtion into the high suicide rate among veterans published in the New York Times in October 2010 revealed that three times as many California veterans and active service members were dying soon after returning home than those being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We hear little about the personal hell soldiers live through after returning home."
