We shortly will mark the first decade of a war in Afghanistan and the first decade of a war that few in America know about, let alone care about. Over two million young Americans have served in wars and returned home to discover no one even knows they were gone, let alone knows where they have been. It is no surprise that latest figures indicate nearly three hundred thousand suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. And latest reports indicate the nonstop deployments and redeployments have ravaged the bodies of our fighting men and women.
Army studies reveal dramatic increases in heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and even obesity for those in the armed forces. Although, a high percent are in their 20s or 30s, these diseases, most commonly noted in older Americans, is now present in younger Americans. To fight a war without requiring ALL to participate, results in diseased bodies. Of course, these wars are a result of diseased minds. I do not think George Bush has any of these diseases.
I wonder why?
