Should I be surprised? IŽll never get why folks join the army by choice.

May Mother God and Father God help our soldiers! I opposed the war because we could have brought those who were responsible for 911 to justice without the mass destruction of war. As it is now, the damage will go on for generations to come. Thank you for the news. I saw it when it aired. (s, n, p, t)

Thank you for the link to such a powerful story. The acceptance of the truth about TBI is slow indeed, but bit by bit, becoming more mainstream. Those who pull the strings of war from paneled conference rooms deserve to be on the front lines while our loyal and courageous soldiers come home and be supported in their recoveries.

Yet where is the money to help these men? Obama has a cold disreguard for service men who need help.God forbid, they should die of their injuries, this administrsation will offer no compensastion.

We've only just begun to scrape the surface of this most debilitating of what war does to our humanity. We have far to go, far far to go,....

Thanks.
Jeff Probst (yes, the survivor host) had addressed similar issues on his program last week. His guest was a military man that suffered severe PTSD. He explained this illness quite clearly.
Bless all who serve.

PTSD may take years to be diagnosed. I have a Vietnam era friend that seemed ok until 9/11. Then everything came back in his memory and he is now fully disabled. I have relatives in the current wars that have suffered varying degrees of PTSD. Treatment of TBIs wil need to go on for years. The cost of these wars will be immense in the healthcare that our troops will need...and it is only right that we provide that care for them.
Bless our troops.
