Soldiers from every war see hell. I just used WW2 as an example for the huge upswing afterwards.

I think the Vietnam Vets have stories that are the hardest to hear, because even after they got home, they had hippies spit on them and disrespect them while they were at their lowest points. My father and 4 of my uncles were Vietnam vets who rarely told stories when I was younger because they were still dealing with the horrific details. However decades later they have let go of the pain. Even remembering a few funny stories and enjoying telling their stories. Even the worst ones. It just took them 4 decades to see the light in the darkest of times.

So yes. You are right with that quote. You can choose to see the light in this. I promise you it is there. It is just harder to see.
