Every Memorial Day, most Americans get the day off from work or school and they usually celebrate with a day at the beach or by having a red, white and blue-themed barbecue.
But of course the real reason for the day is to remember the countless veterans who have sacrificed to serve and protect the country. Soldiers perform their jobs like the rest of us, and in doing so, often face great hardship and suffer great loss. Up to 20 percent of recent veterans experience posttraumatic stress disorder in a given year.
To raise awareness of the unsung struggles soldiers face during and after combat, a 6-year army vet named Casey created a tumblr called JustWarThings that juxtaposes memes that celebrate everyday pleasures back home with memories from past battles.
