Long term PTSD in Veterans
I was reading the story of the Alabama man who has a child stashed in an underground bunker. He shot and killed the bus driver in front of 22 children and snatched that child. The article mentioned that he is a Vietnam vet and that he might have PTSD. I don't know if that is true or not in this case, but it got me to thinking.
All these people that come home from the needless wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Some of them will have PTSD, diagnosed or not. Years later, the stress may build up and cause these folks to snap.
So the more people we send into combat for a war that doesn't matter ... the more people we have later that may cause harm to themselves, their family and even strangers in the future.
Are we building an army of human explosives?
