It is very easy to dwell upon America’s beginnings and founding fathers when we Americans annually celebrate Independence Day. But, let us not forget those of our current US Military who have given all to further the virtuous goals of those great men and women who first declared and fought for independence; that our country could become this United States of America:

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder:

PTSD And TBI Are Not Domestic Violence by Charles E. Corry, Ph.D. – ejfi.org/

Excerpt:

>>>>>>> What manner of fiends are these?

Clearly, radical feminist ideology and the resultant indiscriminate draconian laws with mandatory arrest, no drop prosecution, and primary aggressor policies lead to the wholesale destruction of military careers and their families and children based on the injuries and stress of combat. For doing their duty and honoring the call of their country, radical feminism rewards these men and women with arrest and destruction of their lives if they survive the multiple tours of combat they commonly endure today. Typically these men, and a few women, lose their veteran’s benefits as well when caught up in the nightmare of DV courts, and commonly become homeless mental wrecks, or end up in prison, and, all too often, eventually commit suicide. In 2010 it is estimated that a veteran commits suicide every 18 minutes.

If you are not outraged by such indecent and disgusting treatment of our most honorable citizen soldiers then there is little vestige of humanity in you!

It should be remembered that in the wars of the 20th Century that psychiatric casualties outnumbered physical casualties and the problems often didn’t become apparent for years or decades after the combat. So even after the current wars end these problems will not go away and are virtually certain to grow worse with time.

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are not limited to soldiers in combat. Any encounter with interpersonal violence can lead to PTSD symptoms and any number of accidents may result in the closed-head injuries that characterize TBI.

The reality is, however, that there are many more civilian cases of PTSD and TBI than among veterans. The problem is not trivial but societies response to these problems is asinine. <<<<<<<< ejfi.org/
