The (Not So) Hidden Cost

This kind of thing, especially in Fort Hood of all places, is a problem and one that getting increasing attention.

Soldiers coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq need more help then they are currently getting. Some of them may not want it. Some of them may not need it. But they should still, by direct order if need be, be forced to undertake a mandatory amount of counselling upon return from tours.

If there is an occupation on this planet that would have trouble opening up, it is the military. If they don’t want to, make them. If its saves lives, it’s worth it.

    not a bad watch and an eye opener on the American Military’s legacy to those badly affected by those two foreign wars.
