she rejected the Republican establishment’s notion that Trump isn’t “red” enough.
“All of a sudden, they’re saying we’re not red enough; we’re not conservative enough. And I say, ‘What in the world do they know about conservatism?’” Palin challenged.
" No amount of medication can replace the healing power of Jesus Christ" --Sarah Palin talking about PTSD treatment
You can only get mental illness if you have seen combat.
Far from it, there are many traumatic experiences that sailors, soldiers and airmen could witness during their military careers which take place outside of live combat situations. Whether it is training incidents, administering medical treatment, or other activities in war zones, these traumatic experiences can stay with personnel and lead to mental ill-health in later life.
but don't roll your eyes at PTSD claims just because they were never in any actual danger.

Doesn't she gets enough money in Alaska due to her ties to big oil companies to make sure her son gets the treatment it needs, or she rather have the tax payer to pay for it, what a joke, very soon she will have him disable and on SS.

Its always amazed me that so many soldiers, even ones that never saw any combat, thinks they were a hero and comes back with PTSD. I had an ex-girlfriend who worked in the motor pool when deployed somewhere in iraq in 2002-2004. I guess her job was a "mechanic" for various vehicles, although i'm not sure how she managed that because she was entirely mechanically inept, couldn't even change the oil in her toyota. She came back like she's just got back from Vietnam, claiming she got PTSD from being scared all the time. I once asked her "So what sort of combat did you see?" "well, I didn't see any actual combat, but a couple times I could hear mortars launching at the foward base on the other side of the city and never knew when one of them was going to land on us" "how far away was the forward base?" "oh, about 20 or 30 miles away."
I had a hard time taking her PTSD, and subsequent freakouts every 4th of July when the "mortars" were too much for her to handle, seriously after that.
