Default Almost 300,000 U.S. soldiers suffer from mental problems

WASHINGTON.— Almost 300,000 U.S. soldiers who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan — the equivalent of one out of every five veterans of those wars — are suffering from depression and other psychological disorders, according to a study by the Rand Corporation, a think tank.
The report, titled “Invisible Wounds of War,” also says that about 20 percent of those who return from military missions in the region have suffered probable traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The 500-page report, published on the website www.rand.org, notes that soldiers have reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or serious depression, but only a little over half of them have sought treatment, because they are worried it will jeopardize their careers.
The researchers who produced the study, the first major one of its kind, warned that these health problems among veterans could cost the United States up to $6.2 billion in the coming years, with that figure based on “medical care, forgone productivity and lost lives through suicide.”
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) refers to a state of anxiety that can emerge after having suffered or witnessed a trauma — rape, war, natural disasters, abuse or serious accidents — that has caused extreme horror.

its all about training. the US army jus dnt teach their soldiers how to cope with mountainous warfare. and trust me when i say mountain warfare will fuk your head up. i got a lot of fam in the turkish army, and our armies main trade is chasing terrorists on mountains. shit will fuk you up. the Afghan mountains are the worst.

Also combat will drive a man crazy. its all good simulating war, but when your in battle and bullets are flying over your head. shit gets to you.

This is really nothing new. Since World War I and the birth of 'mechanized' warfare 'shell shock' has been common in all wars.
They just call it different stuff.....WWI it was shell shock....WWII it was battle fatigue.

Anytime your fighting with these sophisticating killing machine that possess the type of destruction that they do, you will have this.

Mountainous warfare, trench warfare, jungle fighting......wutever it is, this will happen.

Good luck. Some people love it. Its what they were born to do. But alot of people either get drafted to fight, or join up for finacial reasons hoping they wont see any real action.

Whats your reason for joining?

I remember i saw somethign were they asked a bunch of soldiers if they signed up cuz of the benifits and something like 90% did......the others did it to defend the country and whatnot.
I think they makes a difference in whether or not you are mentally prepared to handle it.

Im kinda sick/bored of whats going on in my current life. Kinda hard to get into all the details cause I got so many..

The money has nothin to do with it, cause I got good money right now as it is, and made many good business moves in the last 3-4 years to make sure of that

I just need a new chapter in my life, cause the current one just isnt working
