The soldier's need better medical care. Army "doctors" just don't cut it. Being handed a bag of pills and being told to try them all until one is found that works, is not real medical treatment. That is not quality care. Army "doctors" are just not educated enough to be treating a dog, let alone a human.

How about we stop trying to police the damn planet and sending out troops in every country that will benefit the federal reserve and the IMF.

more chaplains, drugs don't help anyone, if your depressed the military has a pill for that....better off teaching positive reenforced classes, with teachers and instructors who will get you motivated....suicide is caused by negativity and depression....you counter act that by positivity and love....chaplains are supposed to make this happen but they can't with thousands of soldiers and only few of them.....more chaplains overseas equal more one on one talk with someone which in turn decreases the amount of suicide...also manditory house visits to vets by chaplains....this chaplain program would consist of someone going to list of vets houses every month without permission just like a salesman.....if the vet wants help its at his doorstep if not...then the chaplain will just be turned away and on to the next house with the next vet....those who want help will have it available without any excuse...also it creates jobs also.....youth ministers,preachers, priests,anyone could sign up for this who was certified by a chaplain.....or just stick with military chaplains...helps everyone win win...money for economy,,,help for vets.....and personal accomplishment for person helping the vet and a paycheck just an idea...just throwing it out there...help people from killing themselves....
