Seems everyone in the military is claiming PTSD. How many can there be since only a small percentage see combat.

It's a valid medical claim and you can bet your ass the system is designed to deny the claim.

Maybe you can have a valid PTSD claim just by serving.

Who the fuck are you to claim otherwise?

Unfortunately, there are dishonest people abusing the VA. I'm afraid claiming PTSD will be like crying wolf one day.

There is an official video from Israel stating that jews while serving in the Israeli military never never never get PTSD.


Proof that all jews in the military are psychopaths.

I'm sure there are, but the VA is such an incredibly inefficient organization that I doubt many people are having success with using them as a gravy train.

There was a story about a dude who killed himself after serving in the Post this Sunday I think...

PTSD is nasty shit. It's very hard to treat. It doesn't respond to the "standard" treatment (antidepressants) as well as "regular" anxiety or depression. My heart goes out to those who've served and deal with it.

Amen brother. So many who have never served make cowardly comments about our men and women in uniform all the time.

Did you serve your country in uniform?
