It's all part of a fledgling Army program that records how soldiers' brains work when healthy, giving doctors base-line data to help diagnose and treat the soldiers if they suffer a traumatic brain injury – the signature injury of the Iraq war.
“We don't want to wait until the soldier is getting out of the Army to say, 'But I've had these symptoms,' ” said Lt. Col. Mark McGrail, division surgeon for the 101st.

Difficult situations are part of life. We all must cope with tough circumstances, such as bereavement or conflict in our personal and professional relationships, and learn to move on. But sometimes people experience an event which is so unexpected and so shattering that it continues to have a serious effect on them, long after any physical danger involved has passed. Individuals with this kind of experience may suffer flashbacks and nightmares, in which they re-live the situation that caused them intense fear and horror. They may become emotionally numb. When this condition persists for over a month, it is diagnosed as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is one of several conditions known as an anxiety disorder. This kind of medical disorder affects approximately 1 in 10 people. They are among the most common of mental health problems. Children and adults can develop PTSD. The disorder can become so severe that that the individual finds it difficult to lead a normal life. Fortunately, treatments exist to help people with PTSD bring their lives back into balance.
What causes it?
PTSD is caused by a psychologically traumatic event involving actual or threatened death or serious injury to oneself or others. Such triggering events are called 'stressors'; they may be experienced alone or while in a large group.
Violent personal assault, such as rape or mugging, car or plane accidents, military combat, industrial accidents and natural disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes, are stressors which have caused people to suffer from PTSD. In some cases, seeing another person harmed or killed, or learning that a close friend or family member is in serious danger has caused the disorder.

Feel free to look up the legal definitions.
The 2nd Ammendment only applies to people (the state)

If that is true, then why is the right to bear arms infringed? the second ammendment expressly states that the right shall not be infringed.
Why don’t take your lazy self over to google and research the S.C.s rulings on this.
Why don't you take your lazy self down to the public library, grab a law dictionary and actually look up the terms for yourself.
Stop getting your definitions from Brady; he has a hole in his head.
Stop getting your definitions from popular culture.

The popular use of legal terms is so loose, so many words have technical legal meanings different from those which they bear in ordinary speech, and intelligent understanding of the cases and of law books depends so much upon a clear grasp of the terms used, that the beginner cannot be too assiduous in pulling down his law dictionary whenever he has the slightest reason to suspect that a word he meets in his reading may have a technical legal meaning . . .
. . . He should from the very beginning exert himself to be sure
that he knows the exact meaning of the terms he uses, and strive to avoid slovenly usages and popular misuses when he is writing or speaking to judges or lawyers, or in professional connections.
