Soldiers Home Soldiers Home Many of the titles of Ernest Hemingways stories are ironic, and can be read on a number of levels; Soldiers Home is no exception. Our first impression, having read the title only, is that this story will be about a old soldier leaving out the remainder of his life in an institution where veterans go to die.
