Looks like the MSM and hollywierd are going to do to this generation of vets what they did to those coming back from VN...shameful.

War is hell. Having young men become machines exposed to daily threats and extreme acts of violence takes a huge toll on them. One the subjects in the articles talks about taking pictures of dead and mutilated bodies. That's going to take a toll on anyone.
I hope these men and women are treated with a lot of love and kindness when they are back. They gave a piece of their souls in fighting for their country and especially with so much leftist hatred directed their way.

This, I believe as a Vietnam Veteran, is a bunch of BS. If this was so then those that served in WW II and WW I and Korea and Civil and Revolutionary would have all been nuts which very few were and the WW II vets made a great country even greater.
For those of us who really served in Vietnam I have never seen this so called post-traumatic crap. Except when we were spit on and had human waste thrown at us when we returned from war by the left wing Democrats.
