The Modern Day DBA Casualty

Melt Down

Lucas Vinson was apparently shot by a soldier who was in a rage.

These incidences are occurring at an alarming rate even if you do not count the ones that have been covered up.

Have no doubt we’ll soon hear about all the clues leading up to this trajedy.

It’s a shame that the people sitting comfortably at a desk in  DC making the decisions to send soldiers and contractors with stress disorders back for some more don’t have to live with the results of their decisions.

How many contractors in the war zones are receiving VA benefits for PTSD?

How many soldiers and contractors are on meds for stress disorders?

Sadly we just cannot scream loud enough to make a difference.
