75 years after Pearl Harbor, a veteran says soldiers across generations can unite

Lou Conter, a Pearl Harbor veteran, said the intense military training and time to decompress after serving were what helped him to survive in World War II, and these things are necessary for soldiers to survive and avoid sustaining PTSD after they return home. He added that war today is fundamentally the same as it has been throughout history, and soldiers across generations can unite over the experience. In 2015, Conter found a personal military connection within his family tree. Officials from Ancestry helped him discover that his fourth great-grandfather, Thomas Bliss, was a soldier in the Revolutionary War who fought in its very first battle in Lexington.
