Gen. Wesley Clark Talks About PTSD

From the New Jersey Jewish Standard:

"Addressing veterans’ issues [at the American Legion Post in Rochelle Park, Gen. Wesley] Clark said that America’s security relies on its armed forces and those forces need more than they are getting, in the field and at home. He told of a soldier whose mother he had recently met. The young man came home from Iraq without visible wounds, although he’d witnessed comrades die. One day he left a note for his mother, pulled the trigger on his gun, and committed suicide.

Clark, who had suffered from post-traumatic stress after his service in Vietnam, said that the Israelis have psychologists and psychiatrists for every man in the army, and the United States owes 'it to our men and women to take better care of them.'"
