I'm sorry for your experience. May this empower you sir, it takes one person to make a difference..I'm going to suggest that getting intouch with local newspapers. Email, call news channels. There is also a lady with her own tv show,.very well known acrossed the nation. She was a high powered attorney that stands up for peoples rights .she's blunt and straight to the point. I don't want to say her, because I'm sure I can get introuble for it. I so hope you know who I mean!!! Anywho Email her ..good luck .and please keep us up with updates .

I'm really sorry you're having such a hard time. A dear friend of mine, a Marine, a veteran of the first Gulf War, committed suicide while waiting for various things, including an operation he needed and a ruling on his PTSD. I hope your issues can be resolved before things reach the depths they did for him. I'd hate to lose another member of the military...

I think you are completely full of crap and want an UNEARNED pension for life.

You had a personality disorder before you ever joined. Evidenced by the fact that your mother committed suicide. Can you say hereditary???

It is people like you that are making it very difficult for really sick veterans to get the help they need.

There is a LOT you aren't saying here and this whole story is pathetic!!!

If he inherited a mental disorder or not he was still allowed to join the military and he did serve his country and also he did incur ptsd while in service. So if you can't help him don't tramatize even more.

Stop whining about 9/11 mate, we've had more then our fair share of terrorism over here, but you lot let Bush fill you with s**t with the Iraq was involved in 9/11 garbage, and you believed him. Your troops aren't conscripts,they volunteered,and our lads are with you, and I still say it's a dumb war.& in no way am I anti American one bit!!

I saw that "9/11 garbage" as you call it first hand on tv as the second plane crashed into the 2nd Twin Tower. I was watching what we all thought was a terrible accident when the 2nd one deliberately flew into the other tower. So don't tell me that it's garbage. And by the way Mate, one of my son's is part Irish.
