OT No care for vet's

Was watching a news program this morning. They were doing a story about a traveling memorial that set's up combat boots that signify the number of deaths in the sand. Sorta gives a face if you will, rather than just a
number. But the reporter went on to say that what isn't counted are the deaths of those that occur after returning home. Seems just like after VN, the number of suicide's of returning troops takes off. The father one related his tale of trying for months to get help for his son to no avail. Seems the military feels they can take a guy or girl that has been fighting for his or her life one day and drop them back in hometown USA with a class on returning to civilian life and that's it. They tried that after VN and it doesn't work. They have to follow up with these folks or it will be the same horror show as it was after Viet Nam. Sorry, had to vent.
