USAToday Reports on PTSD (and us, too!)

Just a quick note: PTSD Combat and ePluribus Media's work has been mentioned and linked over from USAToday's "On Deadline" ('Breaking News and must-read stories') today as part of a post called Little Help for Troubled Troops:

A citizen-journalism initiative called ePluribus Media has been covering this [combat PTSD] issue for quite some time. They have developed a database of what they describe as PTSD-related incidents

That's a really nice nod that our work is being recognized. While you're over at USAToday, I'd highly recommend reading Gregg Zoroya's report this morning on the plight of veterans who find themselves in a no-win situation:

In Iraq, Marines who perform well in combat can be lauded for it. But if they develop PTSD, they can be punished for stress-related misconduct, kicked out of the military and denied treatment for their illness," Zoroya writes. "In recent months, the Marine Corps has begun investigating the matter, identifying 1,019 Marines who may fall into this group since the war in Iraq began. All served at least one year in the Marines and one tour overseas before being discharged for misconduct.
