After reading with great interest WyredOnes thread (link below) about only 1 in 5 US vets with PTSD recieving treatment.....
........i was appaulled to read this news item below from CNN.
Are they stupid or what? You don't send troops who are taking medication for depression back into combat with a weapon! Even worse, and i can't
believe i even read this, you don't send troops with a comfirmed diagnosis of PTSD into combat!!!
I'm not saying it's always that easy to see signs of depression, as some people can hide this away very well, but we are talking about soldiers with
KNOWN conditions, KNOWN cases of PTSD. Why? In some cases because of troop shortages! Thats gets my vote for one of the most pathetic things i've
seen the military do, and also shows how much they really give a damn about the troops at times!
Lets just hope they get this sorted sooner rather than later, theres enough of our troops getting killed by the enemy out there as it is without our
own military helping out!
