Donald Zito spent his tour of duty in Vietnam repairing the massive trucks the Military used to transport troops and supplies. They are called six-bys. He worked through the night so that the vehicles would be back on line by morning. He frequently had to drop his tools and grab his rifle when the enemy attacked his base. Returning home, he showed none of the symptoms of Post Tramatic Stress Syndrom, and was listed as a "Functional Veteran." One who does not suffer from PTSD. He went to work fixing the same type of large trucks that he worked on in Vietnam. After twenty five years, he looked at the sky one night as he worked on the trucks and watched the same type of helicopters he saw in Vietnam, now working for the Police fly over. He heard automatic gun fire from the ghetto as rival gangs clashed. He set his tools down and went home. It took a long time for him to return to his regular life. The war can come from the far past and bring back its horrors.

Immense trauma portrayed Aldo both within the dialogue and the expression coming together to show the valour of young men who put their lives on the line in the hope of peace and freedom around the Planet ....
The Image is intense and reflects that disturbing dark past to his life!

A truly moving story, Aldo, one of many thousands like it, I know. Your portrait really does capture something of the tale, I don't know if it's the mans expression, or your processing, but it's very effective.
I can only hope he recovered enough to live out his life as well as he no doubt deserved, having given so much .
