  • I know right so clueless we have to waste 17 million dollars on some college research study instead of spending the $.15 on a piece of paper and the tread on the shoes walking around a rapid deploy post like Hood or Riley asking the soldiers themselves "Hey what about back to back rapid deploy tours stresses you out?"

    OR

    they could really go for broke and spend the week at Campbell with the 101st! That one post itself has had THIRTEEN suicide awareness stand downs in the past 3 years!

    It seems like a new problem with this war....but its a pattern by the higher ups in the military. Look how our vets are treated/...
