In his defense, I held 3 different AFSC's in the Air Force and a different MOS in the Army.
To tell you how confusing it was, I once made a label with that OD duct tape that said "Squadron Punk Ass Bitch" on my office as a joke.
At that same time, my Col. was walking by.
And kept walking.
On Saturday, the day before the shooting spree, Browne said, the soldier saw his friend's leg blown off. Browne said his client's family provided him with that information, which has not been verified.
The other soldier's "leg was blown off, and my client was standing next to him," he said.

Posttraumatic stress disorder[note 1] (PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. This event may involve the threat of death to oneself or to someone else, or to one's own or someone else's physical, sexual, or psychological integrity, overwhelming the individual's ability to cope. As an effect of psychological trauma, PTSD is less frequent and more enduring than the more commonly seen acute stress response. Diagnostic symptoms for PTSD include re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks or nightmares, avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma, and increased arousal—such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, anger, and hypervigilance. Formal diagnostic criteria (both DSM-IV-TR and ICD-10) require that the symptoms last more than one month and cause significant impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

Have you been shot at: Yes
Have you witnessed someone bleeding out begging for help: Yes
What this soldier did was not some PTSD episode, it was a planned out event. He didn't just wake up one night and snap, he had to plan to get off base alone(if thats what happend), and he had a plan for what would take place when he arrived in the village.
