Is it that, these soldiers are be discharged without the proper treatment needed, iam not saying that they can be cured but the help tends to stop after 180 days or less depending on there discharge. Alot of the time the recruiters are pushing in people that cant adapt to the military life style and that causes alot of problems then and now, How can these types of situations be prevented from happening over and over again. THANK GOD NO ONE WAS HURT PHYSICALLY.

The recruiters are putting people in with out fully looking into their profiles and pyscological testing. Thay need more recruiter who know what they are doing and instead of just letting things pass through just for their bonuses.

This is not about psychologically evaluating men and women prior to entering the military. It's about providing proper psychological services to the men and women who are returning from a deployment in a war zone. PTSD situations are only going to become worse. This young man is crying out for help the only way he knows how and until NOW it appears that "No one was listening"! Our returning soldiers deserve our support and we are not providing it to them!
