My Son is serving his 4th deployment, 82nd Airborne. My Son did not sign up for the Army to go to college. He joined the Army to get the terrorists who killed 3,000 Americans in one day!

I'm sorry Mr. Cherry is not well but turning your back on your Brothers is not the right thing to do. Work harder in your therapy and skip making movies with Matt Damon. We are in a war and what you are doing is hurting our Soldiers and aiding and abetting the enemy.

Reading this article I was hearing my son talk to me and me to him. Eugene fight the 30 %. You can re-file your claim and have the compensation raides. See the VA and ask to be placed in the Trauma Recovery Program. We did not know about the program until our Congressmans office told is. The regular mental health is not equiped not trained for PTSD.

God Bless all of you

Mrs Perlson, You may want to ask your son about your comments before you make them. He may know everything that Eugene is talking about. He may even have buddies that have the same ghosts.

My son served and proudly. He has the haunts everytime he tries to go to sleep. Be thankful that your son has not shared these things with you. He must be trying to protect you from the war. Maybe we, mothers, should buck up and let our troops brings us to the dark days they must live in.
