ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, NOV. 11, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - This undated image provided by the National Veterans Art Museum shows "Army Man In A Bottle II" by Malachi Muncy. He was just 18 when he first deployed, and once in the combat zone, Muncy says he began taking sleeping pills to shut out the world. The constant dangers he faced on truck-driving convoys were overwhelming. "So much bad stuff happened," he recalls. "Watching IEDs explode, and mortars hit. Being pinned down on bridges, you wonder where the fire is coming from. You just sit and wait to get shot at and you have no control over whether you're going to live or die ... I was having nightmares. I really felt I was going to do stupid things and hurt the wrong people. I was having thoughts I couldn't expel." (AP Photo/National Veterans Art Museum, Malachi Muncy)
