Today’s Early Bird edition of Military News states that Americans think more than half the military vets are suffering from some sort of mental disorder.
Without a doubt war marks an individual. We, myself included, aren’t the first veterans to return home after serving. My great great grandfather served in the War of 1812. My great-grandfather served in the Civil War. Though I never met either of them, the stories handed down make me think they were rather normal.
We aren’t hearing the back half of this story. What about the front half? Who is to say that some of today’s veterans weren’t harboring some sort of mental disorder before they served?
