    I realise it will be regarded by many as religious nuttery, but if I had PTSD, I’d make a point of spending as much time as possible, which might not be more than an hour to an hour and a half, since expositions of the Blessed Sacrament tend to be held at around the same time on a Frday evening,at least in Edinburgh ; just sitting in front of the Sacred Host in a Catholic church, not necessarily saying much to Jesus.

    Just doing that would be to challenge him, in a way, to at least make your life livable again. He said that he came to give us life and to give it more abundanty – while the thief (guess who they might be in this context) comes only to kill and to destroy.
    ‘The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.’ – John 10:10
    Doesn’t matter if you’re a Protestant. Just know that he’s in that piece of white wafer.

      Sorry. That should be Saturday evenings. And don’t give up after one or two sessions. You’ll get consolation anyway in the meantime.

    What is a Russian website, with a talking head who learned English from the British, doing commenting on U.S. Veterans affairs? Inappropriate. None of Russia’s business.

      Rubbish. Ask not for whom the belll tolls. It’s a global village. You ARE your brother’s keep. Unfortunately, American governments seem to take that as a green light to set up a prison archipelago, instead of a sanatorium for the injured and damaged, in ruthless predatory wars.

      I read recently that scores of British special-forces have been sent home from Afghanistan and automatically discharged for drug-taking, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it intentionally. Hitler tried to get the U-boat commander, Admiral Doenitz to get his men to shoot Allied women and children in the water when they had sunk their civilian vessels, but Doentiz told him that you can’t ask track troops to do that.

      In the end, they did have to, after a couple of Allied planes had shot up a U-boat and crew trying to save Allied civilians, picking them out of the sea and taking them onboard.

    Agree completely on the emphasis, Dr. Let’s get the word out and keep drumming it into peoples’ awareness.

    Good words.

    Well said, Gordon. I would add that the spectacle of the Republican debate, with, among others, Messrs. Rubio and Kasich, and Ms. Fiorina, advocating, in fact, all but demanding, for starts, commitment of US service people through the imposition of “no fly” zones in Syria and further militarization of the border with Russia by NATO (each of which Secretary Clinton also supports), while making anemic statements about “fixing the VA” make the condition of US “leadership” on this all the more pathetic. I would challenge any candidate to make a simple, basic declaration, that, at a very minimum, a precondition for committing any US forces be that the VA is fixed immediately. Until we can assure our service people that they will be adequately cared for, and not disposed of into the VA as it currently exists, no troops should be put into harm’s way, period. Add to that a diversion of funds from any bloated, overbudget, useless Pentagon project (F35, LCS, for low hanging fruit) to reconstitute the VA, and watch how quickly the lobbyists, contractors, and compromised representatives act.

      CRM: “Precondition” for new commitments? Precondition for continued commitments is better.

      John: Rubio, Kasich, Fiorina, Bernie, Hillary & Bibi should go first. If they don’t succeed, send troops.
