Re: Army reviewing Madigan team’s reversals of PTSD diagnoses” (TNT, 1-28).
Shame on the Army, and shame on the Pentagon. They send our young men and women to nightmare war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan, and when they come home less than whole they are accused of malingering?
These young people give up so much and are dumped out on the street without help like old used rags, in the name of saving money on retirement, health care, costs. This happened after Vietnam, too, but people just didn’t recognize the disease at that time.
The Army needs to make this right. The Pentagon needs to own up to its wrongdoings. These GIs didn’t start these wars, politicians did, the “1 percent” did. The veterans shouldn’t have to bear the weight of their leaders’ mistakes and greed.
Give them the help they need – now.
