In the Story A Soldiers Home Krebs comes back after being in World War 1 He comes home only to find that somethings in his home town have changed The girls in his town have grown up and his parents want him to move on get married and get a job The war has effected Krebs in a way that he can not go on with his normal life Before Krebs came home from the war he was not allowed to use the family car But now his mom said that they discussed it and that if he wants he can take the car out and drive some of the girls around He loved to look at them from the porch Most of them had short hair they all wore sweaters and shirt waists with round Dutch collars He says it was a pattern He liked The round Dutch collars above their sweaters He liked their silk stockings and flat shoes141 This shows me that he is looking for patters to make the adjustment back into the town He also could not meet his parents expectations because he could not tell them the truth Like when his mother asked if he loves her and he says no But then she starts to cry and he says that he didnt mean it and that he does love her but at the end he said He had felt sorry for his mother and she had made him lie144 which shows us he had no compassion for her There is one more thing I think is why he could not meet his parent expectations and that was because his mind was still in the war stage He is the narrator and he refers to himself has Krebs which would be his war name while his mother called him Harold This is showing us that he needs to find more patters in his life to maybe steer himself
