Where have I seen this before???

There is the case about Spc. Anderson from Georgia who went into a latrine and blew his head off in Iraq or Afghanistan. I believe he was targeted because he was black.

Then there is my friend Sgt. Russell who suffers from dyslexia and PTSD. He was harassed by his section and then ignored by the mental health clinics until he snapped and went postal.

If he was falling asleep all the time why didn't it dawn of them to send his to the TMC. If someone keeps falling asleep all the time then just maybe that person is sick. They can also be suffering from depression or PTSD. Some people who are depressed tend to sleep more and some people like my friend who suffer from PTSD get insomnia.

But NO, it's easier to act like a Neanderthal. Then again, it is thought that Neanderthals took care of their own which is a lot more than can be said about some who serve in the military.

When is someone in higher up going to take all these cases into consideration and do something about it? Where is the leadership?
