I’ve heard VA people complain that none of the veterans come to them until they’ve gotten in trouble somehow, which is probably indicative of self-reliant people. I’m not a veteran, but I know that I wouldn’t go to some social worker if I was having problems with things and they probably feel the same way.
Lord knows how to solve it, and like many ugly things in life, there may not really be a way to fix it, but there IS a mechanism in place to help troubled veterans for sure.
You may very well be correct with veterans.
But what about reserves or active duty?
Do they kill themselves so they don’t have to do another tour? Have we asked too much?
Would they consider a discharge instead of killing themselves?
Lots of questions
