Ptsd And Tbi Concerns In Iraq -afganistan Servicepersonnel

Rate this question




These two reports were mentioned in a ticker at 6 AM on Fox news-

If there was an actual exit strategy for these situations

(of course there was one) it was highly deficient in not considering these factors-

Everything I have learned about warfare at school-from studying Lessons learned and actual decisional assessments from commanders of all wars shows this is should be a prime concern

for leaders before they even get an exit strategy down on paper.Even before they plan an operation or campaign.

The phrase "battle fatigue" associated with PTSD (before they gave PTSD its name) has become more of a reality in re-deployments than in any subsequent war-in my opinion-

Battle fatigue- even without PTSD components -causes loss of morale, and can led to poor tactical decisions.

Washington's men were exhausted and many had no shoes when they marched into Trenton in 1776.

Food supplies were low, their clothing was worn out and inappropriate for the weather,it was difficult to keep the gunpowder dry, and the eastern part of the country was experiencing a cold spell highly unusual for this area.

But they maintained high morale and well we all know how the Battle of Trenton turned out.

The situation with these re-deployments and extended deployments -so different from past traditional

warfare situations-that it is definitely causing PTSD and considerable stress to families that are affected too.

and the VA is not at all prepared to deal with this.

The statistics on suicide in these two articles at Watchdog is VERY alarming.
