Many people do not know this, but the bond between two soldiers are closer than family. I do believe that a living veteran that was close to said dead veteran can tell more accurate accounts of their experiences in war. Yes, the immediate family does know about their character before they went to war, but war is what changes a person. The point of this project is to educate the future on the war, and thus the veteran fighting in the war. This is something only another fellow veteran understands, no matter how much the immediate family tries to.
