Four decades after the Vietnam War, 11% of its veterans still suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to new research suggesting that for some people it is a condition unlikely to ever go away.

Sure does.  And VA is still in denial, and finding creative ways to deny treatment or support...but there are support groups, such as at the Chehalis VA clinic [CBOC].  It's been changed to every Thursday at 3pm. One must be a veteran, with PTSD issues, and register for medical access at that clinic, to access that support group.  Surely there are others at other VA facilities--just not familiar with them.

There once was a police action (euphemism for war), called Vietnam, as well as 10s of thousands, of other places, and times, throughout mankind's history... As with individual warriors, humankind does not seem to be able to heal from it penchance to murder each other...
When Kenneth Jarecke photographed an Iraqi man burned alive, he thought it would change the way Americans saw the Gulf War. But the media wouldn’t run the picture.

I wonder who has more clout, the NYT, which appeals to our elected representatives' reason, or the private prison lobby, which lines their pockets.
