It's the base commanders fault.Our troops may very well have lost their edge to 3+ deployments. PTSD & suicides are @ highs. Troops very well may being hosed on PSTD treatment:http://boards.fool.com/military-vets-gitting-hosed-29906616....Less than 1% of the population is carrying the fighting load* & we are screwing them in treatment as there is no money. I fully expect this is a bipartisan effort.If our country has an interest in these foreign adventures; we should be willing to pay the freight rather allowing these war costs to be off budget.*http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htmurph/articles/20120916.a... It's not just that fewer people serve in the military (about one percent of the population, compared to 12 percent during World War II and 3-5 percent during the Cold War)
