The media has been in an uproar over the recent cases of soldier on soldier killings. A few days ago, Army Sgt. John M. Russell shot and killed five of his fellow comrades at an army based counseling center located inside Camp Liberty. Put two and two together, and it’s obvious Russell had PTSD- he shot them at a counseling center. It doesn’t take a genius to see what happened there.
Seizing opportunity, I wrote an op-ed article based on PTSD and my personal account with an old friend who was diagnosed and is currently on “in-active duty.” I am in the midst of the submission process, my question to you is, would you be interested in reading a personalized piece on soldiers coming back from Iraq with PTSD?
