Get used to this sort of thing, folks.

This country has treated our combat veterans like sh!t for years. I'd even make the case that their treatment while still on active duty has been disgraceful (e.g., SSgt. Bales doing five tours in Iraq and Afghanistan).

I hope I'm wrong, but I think this kind of situation is going to become more common over time.

As George Carlin said, “Post-traumatic stress disorder.” I’ll bet you if we’d have still been calling it “Shell Shock”, some of those Vietnam veterans might have gotten the attention they needed at the time.
