Critical times hard to deal with are here.(2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Not everyone can handle stress well. This fellow had two relatives who recently died.

Imaginate?....Un boricua losing both his mother and grandmother within a very short period. Eso no es facil pa'nadie!

Part of the problem is the "stigma" attached to seeking treatment. And just to think that we here in America are much further along the curve than other nations with issues of mental health.

They were aware he had issues.

However, Armed forces have to do better with getting help for our soldiers.

For starters....How about screening them much better before they formally sign the enlistment documents?.

Hey....That's what the police force does. Perfect sense to me.

Nobody is obligated to join the armed forces in our country. Unless there is a draft.

Actually, it was his mother and grandfather. My error.

The father was eloquent as he could be (considering the circumstances) in his expressions of condolences to the families affected. He alo stated his son was not in his right mind.

He too is suffering. This was his son.

God says to grant mercy to others. Because, if we don't our own judgement will be without mercy when it our time to be judged.

And we will ALL be judged. Every knee must bow down to Jah sooner or later.

U.S. military service disproportionately attracts enlisted personnel and officerswho do not come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Previous Heritage Foundation research demonstrated that the quality of enlisted troops has increased since the start of the Iraq war. This report demonstrates that the same is true of the officer corps.
Members of the all-volunteer military are significantly more likely to come from high-income neighborhoods than from low-income neighborhoods. Only 11 percent of enlisted recruits in 2007 came from the poorest one-fifth (quintile) of neighborhoods, while 25 percent came from the wealthiest quintile. These trends are even more pronounced in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program, in which 40 percent of enrollees come from the wealthiest neighborhoods-a number that has increased substantially over the past four years.
American soldiers are more educated than their peers. A little more than 1 percent of enlisted personnel lack a high school degree, compared to 21 percent of men 18-24 years old, and 95 percent of officer accessions have at least a bachelor's degree.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, minorities are not overrepresented in military service. Enlisted troops are somewhat more likely to be white or black than their non-military peers. Whites are proportionately represented in the officer corps, and blacks are overrepresented, but their rate of overrepresentation has declined each year from 2004 to 2007. New recruits are also disproportionately likely to come from the South, which is in line with the history of Southern military tradition.

I understand, but the fact is that it is true, if there was no religion there would be no jihad

A little more on Fort Hood.

Pa'mi....Aqui este parte de la clave

"Lopez’s neighbors and family members have said he was upset by his mother’s death in November and was frustrated that the Army had given him only a brief leave to return to Puerto Rico for her funeral".

I agree. You are talking logic. Don't we all agree on that?.

But, he's dead and so are his victims.

Again....There has to be much better psychological screening.

How about human being without putting Puerto Rican on this?. No time for Puerto Rican bashing. It's not appropriate.

His father was as eloquent as he could be in expressing his sentiments for the victims and their families as well.

It is interesting that after 9 years in the National Guard and 6 years in the Active Army that this guy only attained the rank of E4, a rank usually unless you are a monumental screwup most military attain after just a couple of years. Some underlying unreported problem with his service maybe ?
