Well we can now see what happens when soldiers are on their 3rd and fourth tour of duty in Iraq.

Just another thing we need to worry about, our soldiers loosing it and killing each other.

I wonder how much longer until they realize they are loosing and it's time to rethink how to go about this war, if to continue it at all.

PTSD is a very prominent mental illness and must be dealt with. Alot of soliders feel that treatment of such symptoms could lead to the downfall of their career. Therefore, most don't seek help.
