Please pray for and give what you can when you can. This ex-Navy Seal is being shunted off by the Navy and our government. Read his story here on. Since I can't post urls, please go there and look for this:

That would be a temporary solution to a much larger problem. He will get help maybe a book, movie some political endosements etc. It's a media frenzy. What about those who's name never made it on yahoo news ? What about the Vietnam Vet ? What about the Gulf War Vet ? Support our Troops can no longer be a pin or bumper sticker. It's good you brought this to our attention. Local churches need to provide for their members who are Vets and those in the community.

Epidemic post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) levels affect hundreds of thousands of combat forces and vets.

The VA estimates over 30% of Vietnam vets, around 10% of Gulf War forces, and up to 20% of America’s Afghanistan and Iraq troops.

VA and DOD officials consistently understate problems. Independent reports reveal more. Some say nearly half of Afghan and Iraq vets have emotional and/or physical combat injuries.

In May 2012, AP said America’s vets “are filing for disability benefits at (a) historic rate.” They’re the “most medically, mentally troubled generation in US history.”
War’s toll is one of the most underreported stories. Hundreds of thousands of combat vets won’t ever be the same again.
They come home sick. They stay that way. They’re traumatized. They’re unable to cope. Emotional damage done goes largely unrecognized. It’s an unseen wound. Many needing help don’t get it.
