War is hell and should be avoided at all costs.

If any of our readers are suffering from PTSD please follow the link provided below. Booze, Drugs and or going head on in your car with a Semi-tractor trailer is not a way to deal with the issue.

I won't bother commenting on the whole "Puppet and War is Wonderful BullCrap"
Veterans Health Administration


Yes, please report all potential political dissidents to a government organization immediately


Sometimes I do wonder how many support administrations, regardless of the country, are actually there to direct and observe post-war soldiers who have lost faith in the political system.

post traumatic stress disorder is just a generic label for "we don't know what is wrong with you" in my professional opinion.

it is a real problem, not something imagined.

the majority of troops coming home are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

the majority of troops are not reporting thier problems.

the majority of troops are being re-deployed with stress disorders and traumatic brain injuries.

the majority of local citizens do not know how to deal with them, are afraid of them, and do not want to work with them.

i have been "temporarily retired" for more than a year now. i am still required to call the wounded warrior program or wounded warrior project at least once a week.

why am i required to call them once a week? because if i do not they will stop paying me my pension and retirement and disability.

Hmmm, well now, if I came to you and said that you should give me 23% of your salary, would you think that was a lot? How about 23% interest in your home, vehicle, or hey, how about 23% of everything you've got?

Would you think 23% was a lot then?

The fact that there are homeless people in the US at all is horrible. The fact that 23% of them are people who have served their nation, is criminal!


Blanca Rose, I agree with you 100% on this topic
