Great posts! My Uncle returned from Vietnam and committed suicide a few years after his return. It is so great that these issues are now recognized and our Vets are able to get some help. Unfortunately more needs to be done. Thanks for the posts.

Austin, thank your mother for me. It takes a special person to deal with this day in and day out. After countless hours of counseling I have acquired a special respect for those that give so much to help those like me.

J, I know nothing about "22" but believe me when I say many of these old vets kill themselves due to being vets. Some have just fought the fight until they are tired and just want piece. The counselors tell us it is because we are feeling our mortality.

If you really all mean what you say about caring for our nations combat veterans ....read about Danial. https://gawker.com/i-am-sorry-that-i...last-534538357

With that said, 29 years ago today I was on a cold tarmac...loading magazines and double checking my gear and prepping for my first taste of combat . We all knew where we were going but would not receive our final objectives until in the air. It would be the first of many combat missions for the next 69 days.

Most of us are just tired of having to fight the VA system for benefits and health care we earned from our service. Even the Director himself called it "adversarial".

If you want to know what PTSD is like read that letter. I can tell you that every veteran will find some commonality with that. For those of you who aren't veterans that is exactly what it's like......
Sorry about the grammar I have some "vet dust" in my eyes.
