Maybe you should step up and fight.
All you tough-asses behind the computer keyboards should save us from terrorism. Please we need you!
Only a real man like you could save our country!
Please, I'm begging you, save our country!
You idiot.

Over 22,000 calls.
1,200 suicides averted.
What were the other 20,000 calls? Pizza orders?

Excuse me "Poor poor me" but are you saying that after watching countless friends die, killing husbands, wives, and children, being stationed in a different country with no friends or family, missing holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and not knowing if you will survive another day is an easy job? Maybe you should be calling a hotline for mental help. Otherwise I would suggest you shut your mouth. Many other, BRAVE men and women have died to give you the freedom to so carelessly bash and ridicule them. What a MAN you are!

Waaaaaaaa, I'm having a nightmare mommy
Waaaaaaa, I'm sleeping under a bridge because I'm not getting enough handouts
Waaaaaaa, the system owes me
Waaaaaaa, I should have a free house and car
Waaaaaaa, waaaaaaa, waaaaaaaa.

I'm glad that PTSD was not invented back in WW1 or WW2.
