give me doughnuts: This is beyond farked-up.I can't even come up with words to describe how farked-up this is.This can do more to destroy morale and degrade the effecticve functioning of the Army than anything an enemy could do. I'm not engaging in hyperbole when I say that I think the commanders doing this sort of thing should be taken out and shot.

Pichu0102: Obvious tag last seen shivering on the corner with a "homeless, please give money" sign.
iheartscotch: Is anybody really surprised by this?If a soldier goes all PTSD on post; the army could be liable.
flondrix: NPR was reporting on this years ago.
CapeFearCadaver: Yep. This is exactly why a lot of veterans are going to private psychologists for help with PTSD, ones who do pro-bono work; so their name doesn't show up anywhere. This sh*t is retarded./also, I'm on a list for the pro-bono PTSD help, but the veterans get moved to the top; I understand this, but I need help, too
Headso: but think of how many tax cuts this policy can pay for.
Peki: Care to toss a link out? I'm unemployed and got diagnosed with PTSD last year. The free mental health clinic wanted to put me on a dozen meds and then said "Maybe this clinic isn't for you" when I pointed out that they were medicated something I didn't have and weren't giving me the therapy I know I need. Long-term counseling is apparently something that's not worthy of funding. *sigh*
DrExplosion: As a soldier with PTSD who is being drummed out of the military, I only hope we can still afford the F-35. We must never lose sight of what's most important.

Nacc: as a soldier with ptsd, having already been outted from the army, and can't get proper farks given or treatment, i am really getting a kick out of nothing. I assume they are just quietly waiting for me to flip my shiat so they can go "See what happens when you fark a stranger in the ass, donny"
HairBolus: During WWI there emerged the phenomena of "shell shock" which for some meant that soldiers brains had been rattled by proximity to large explosions.This phenomena started taking on interpretations of psychological or moral failure where the victims were branded as cowards.The modern view is to lump shell shock into post traumatic stress disorder where the condition results from experiencing horrible things (purely mental) while down playing actual brain damage.
weiserfireman: I was talking to a new guy in our fire department last night. He is recently discharged from the Army with a 60% disability PTSD.One of the other guy's started giving him crap about something stupid. I turned to the other guy and said "be careful, he might snap and choke you to death". Everyone laughed
patthedog: Remember when in 2009 0bama promised to create a seamless, computerized health record system for veteranshttp://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/mon-may-20-2013/america-s-heroes-r et urn---operation-enduring-waitThanks 0bama voters
Securitywyrm: I noticed a phenomenom where teenagers wanted to 'thank me for my service', BUT... they insisted that their friend record them doing it so they could put it on facebook. They weren't really thanking me, they just wanted to be 'seen' thanking me because it was the 'cool thing to do.'
