FORT STEWART, Ga. — Army Sgt. Joe Dombrowski did not see the worst of the war, but he witnessed some pretty bad stuff: the sound of enemy artillery as his unit crossed the Tigris River; the bloodstains on a Humvee after one of his commanders was killed; the soldier who survived a grenade blast that blackened even the whites of his eyes.

Now, when the latest news from Iraq comes on his big-screen TV back home, Dombrowski looks away. “I listen to it, but I don’t want to see it again,” says Dombrowski, 31, who recently returned from Iraq. “Some of that stuff I want to push away, and I don’t want to talk about it.”

Dombrowski is still working through his feelings, just as many of his comrades are doing.

As part of an Army-wide program, all 16,500 soldiers from Fort Stewart’s 3rd Infantry who fought in Iraq have undergone mandatory counseling to deal with the war’s aftermath and the return home.
