We send them overseas with minimal support, get them blown up, shot at, and let them shoot back to retain a hilltop for a year straight. Then we bring them back, and release them into society 3 days after they return. Ridiculous. There needs to be a decompression phase of at least a month where they learn to reintegrate themselves through classes, counselors, and slowly get reintroduced to their spouses if they're married. This isn't the first soldier who has gone off the deep end after returning, and it won't be the last. He just threw his life away. I'll bet he never imagined that.
