Another reason that we need to get our men and women out of that war! They are coming home emotionally stressed and no decent mental help or support. It is almost like the Vietnam Vets all over again. Do we really want this for our people?

I agree, we do need to leave the War in Iraq and begin focusing on our Troopers returning with mental and phyiscal issues. But please do not critizes the medical care the Military provides. The Army put a lot of time and money into PTSD and other related issues. Most of the soldiers suffering from this do not step up and ask for help. Many of them hide and deal with the problems themselfs. If Soldiers do not mention or seek help, The Army can not treat it.
