US troops who return home from assignments in Afghanistan have to learn how to face and handle a new enemy continuously on the American roads - this has been reported in foxnews dated 17th of June 2012.
The new enemy is driving on the roads.
While on the warfront in Afghanistan, they had to always be wary of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) placed on the roadside and take immediate evasive actions whenever they see any suspicious looking object.
This is applicable to not only the soldiers and marines but also to sailors and airmen on a lesser degree – they have to learn to drive for survival in foreign battlegrounds.
That has become second nature, a sort of reflex action, to them.
As a sergeant of the US Marines put it – it was a real cultural shock to come back to Houston from the military.
Anyway – thee is a consolation: the dangers gradually fade away as one gets back into the familiar groove of a civilian lifestyle.
