I just heard that suicide among our servicemen and women is taking lives at a rate greater than enemy fire.

We KNEW THIS from returning Viet Nam vets!

We KNOW this about boys and teens surviving CSA.

Other nations have hyper-ramped-up intervention for both. We have waiting lists!

The Commander In Chief owns the problem with Servicemen and Women.

To add insult to injury - my therapist (who works with military brass dealing with troops suffering from PTSD at war) has said that the military has a checklist questionaire for troops to fill out after their tour of duty. If they indicate they may be suffering from PTSD - they WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO COME HOME, and will keep them overseas, or even send them back out on another tour.

When I heard him say this, I just about lost it.

And this from the nation that we are to trust our healthcare to and surrender our right to self-defense.

Orwell was shooting WAY too low!

Well lets be honest. Someone suffering PTSD who is sent back out is more likely to be killed..... SO.... no pay, no pension, no college funds....

It's the ideal way to guarantee you'll never have to make good on all the lies they tell you when you enlist!

Gotta love our government.
