This article describes the problems of former Ethiopian soldiers with their reintegration into civil life. During an anthropological field study, 60 excombatants were interviewed. They reported feeling frustrated about the lack of interest in their living conditions on the part of the Ethiopian public and Ethiopian and Western Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs). They felt that they had no future perspective. Some of them admitted knowing former soldiers who had contracted HIV/AIDS, or who were guilty of criminal violence.
