I was thinking I wonder if the Movember Group will do their men's wellbeing campaign again this year and mental health has been a part of a number of my correspondence this week, when the following programme came on the TV. If we cannot prepare our troops for the nightmare they are thrown into,often as raw recruits,and then expect them to perform to their optimum even after above normal trauma levels have been reached by being in the combat zone longer then prescribed, then at the very least there should be support for them when they return and not simply let them be disgarded into society as damaged people. They are fighting for our freedoms why cannot they be eligable for justice and re-abilitation before they ruin their own lives that of others and end up in jail, almost for serving their country. This is not new people have suffered post taumatic disorders since WW2 through Vietnam and the present conflicts , why are these guys paying for George W.Bush's desire to finish his fathers work from 10 years previously?
More service personel have commited suicide upon their return home then have been lost in the Iraq or Afgan conflicts together!
