Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

By Michael Leon  Posted by Michael Leon (about the submitter)   No comments
Message Michael Leon

As the rightwing takes aim at Vietnam vets who are just plain worn-out, many have physical trauma.

They can't work anymore. So then they end up at home, alone in the dark with their demons. 

Now, a new generation of vets grip PTSD, and after making it out from the war, come home and kill them selves. 

Please watch this heart-breaking video, Death Because They Served. 

Many Americans slap a bumper sticker on their cars proclaiming “I support the troops;” but too many vets wonder: Does anybody really give a f*ck?
