No one said it wasn't painful.)
I had an idea of a character whose earliest memory was waking up in a mass grave on a battlefield, his clothing* torn, riddled with bullet holes, and stained with blood, but not a scratch on him. Never really knew what to do with it.

* Civilian clothing, not a uniform. And no identifying material on him, so he has no idea why he was in a battlefield grave.
