Soldiers Home For us to be able to understand the short story Soldiers Home must learn a little of Ernest Hemingways background He graduated from high school in 1917 and he volunteered as an ambulance driver during World War 1 who was seriously injured His experiences during the War changed his personality as a person and as a writer In the short story Soldiers Home we see the protagonist Krebs who joined the Marines from a Methodist college in Kansas to transform from a healthy young man to a dispirit lazy human being I think that Ernest Hemingway by writing the short story Soldiers Home was only trying to convey his own self image Therefore in our short story Krebs is trying to get the attention he wants as a war hero he loses his perseverance and the title of the story tells us everything we want to know about him As soon as Krebs comes home from the front he realizes that he came back late He tries to impress his accountancies by dishonesty He wants to be a hero in their mints so he would satisfy his emotional and psychological wounds that the war created on his soul However when he meets another war hero then he does not want to talk about the war anymore He does not want to because he knows that he cannot tell lies to him The person was there and fought as well therefore he knows what happened and that there is no romance or anything good in a battle That day Krebs realizes that it does not worthy it any more to tell lies just to get the attention he needs The morals of the war are very different from the society that he had just left before he went to war In addition by returning back to the States his feelings changed about things and people He loses the feelings he had for his mother
