Our military has been stretched beyond comprehension.Two million service members have cycled into and out of Iraq and Afghanistan- some of them serving multiple times- in both places.There are an estimated 400,000 combat veterans who are suffering from PTSD or other related psychological problems- drug/alcohol abuse, suicidal ideation, violence, etc.I remember the same sort of thing going toward the end of Vietnam... drug abuse, fragging of officers, desertion, violence.Perhaps it is one of the inescapable consequences of protracted conflict. Our soldiers, sailors and airmen are not invulnerable, and combat takes its toll in ways that are not immediately apparent.
