Coming back from war, ugh. I think walking away from this is the most compassionate thing you can do for him and for yourself. Don't take these slights personally. His experience of being in Iraq will likely be felt for a very long time, and he needs to heal from what he's seen there before he can give of himself to anyone else. Find a way to give yourself what you need and know that there was nothing you did wrong.
