Kenz1010, I believe, without a doubt, you had the military past life you thought you had due to your crying. The same thing happened to me in college where I had a class exploring Jewish culture and the Holocaust. I was reading Viktor Frankl's Man's Search For Meaning one night in my dorm room. He mentioned something that happened in the concentration camp he was in and I started crying. I cried for hours and could not stop. I'm not that sensitive, and if I cry about something I'm reading, it's usually only for a minute or two, never hours. Thank you for the link to your story. Your dreams were really interesting, too.
