This is a tragic and heartbreaking story I predict in the years to come we will have to deal with a large number of veterans with such problems and it will be worse than after Viet Nam. Even if a person comes home and is not killed or maimed in Iraq there are still the mental and underlying issues to deal with. Thousands will be damaged for life. The effects could hurt society for many years to come.

That's a disgrace! A government facility of high rep taking care of war injured and it's grosser than a charity hospital. I'm afraid our government cares nothing for them, and are probably sorry they didn't die and get out of the way. Well the whole war is a disgrace and waste of life in all fronts. I can't stand it.

I read two lines. That's all I needed to see. What blind idiots we have 'running' this country. Do they not realize how serious this thing is? It's not like some emo kid throwing emotions around for the hell of it. The man wanted to be watched lest he kill himself. The bastards didn't take him up on it - and he killed himself.


There's a reason my depression remains untreated. That article explains why. I'm simply better off leaving it alone.

That is beyond tragic. There are no words.

Found this today from the Washington Post... it at least sounds as though somebody who can help fix this disaster is as disgusted by it as we are. Time will tell if they're just strong words or not.

Hope that is just the beginning and not the end.

I am impressed by Robert Gates, especially when you consider what Rumsfeld probably would have done. Bravo.
