Doonesbury: B.D.'s Counseling Continues

If you're a Doonesbury fan, you've probably been following the saga of B.D. He's this award-winning comic strip's hard-nosed wounded-in-Fallujah Iraq combat vet. He left a leg in Iraq and came home with PTSD.

This week, creator Gary Trudeau picks the storyline back up again as we find B.D. feeling more and more comfortable with his Vet Center counselor, Elias. That's a big accomplishment; because -- just like most rough and tumble soldiers -- he wasn't too keen on having to ask for anyone's help. If you'd like a refresher, I've written twice before on B.D.'s post-deployment trials and tribulations:

  • B.D. scopes out his local vet center ('reconnoiters' is more like it) but doesn't want to make an appointment.
  • B.D. finally does a bit more than just kick the tires in his first counseling session.
Get your Doonesbury fix in this week. It's a good one...
