Anonymous: It's the military. "Command" may not be able to order a soldier/Marine to do what is best for the unit/Army/Corps -- but they can make it clear that it is expected. Having a mentally fit corps is in the interests of the unit and the country (and not to mention putting these future civilians "back together" is in the soldier's and the country's interest as well.

Your comments on the PTSD committees findings show how much more needs done to make sure our loved ones are cared for. I have such limited communication with my daughter due mostly to physical distance that it is hard to guage her true feelings with just phone calls. It is frustrating and all I can do is let her know I am there for her if she needs me. She's tough on the outside but feels things deeply. Her next deployment is fast approaching and she is very busy with training etc.

I know your son has much to deal with and I pray that he will find healing and strength. Best wishes also to your family and the new grandchild you are looking so forward to.
