I thought that this would be the right place to post the following link to a recently released Army report on the current state of suicides among our soldiers who suffer from some form of PTSD, and what the military is currently doing to address this issue.  To say it's disturbing is an understatement.

Thanks for posting this.  

It's to bad that we even have to have this.

It is time we ALL step up and LISTEN to the hearts of our heroes.

The Sunday before Thanksgiving, I was helping a customer with a purchase when I thanked him for his service...  Noticing my lanyard, he asked what I did in the service and he correctly surmised Black Ops....   He was a sniper in Afghanistan...  We shared experiences, our nightmares, our anger and frustrations - and a bit of advice - that talking about it helps tremendously in easing the pain....

He left more relaxed - his wife heard about stuff he never talked to her about - and they left hand in hand...

Just saw them yesterday - the best Christmas since his return...

My neighbor served in Nam, 1964-1968 then again 1971-1974. If I recall he was a Sgt Army Scout.   He is an outpatient with PTSD.  We talk allot and he feels no one understands. The VA is helping him but talking about his experiances to someone who cares also helps him.
