There were many suicides amongst the Vietnam veterans, and after 9/11 the pattern has returned, in vets from Iraq and Afhanistan, as well as domestic violence, and the murdering of freinds and family.
Many of these soldiers fight with the full knowledge that the wars are not about national defense but about money, big money;

As this nation seeks to create the ultimate soldier, that neither feels emotion, nor concience,
is the inner spirit of these men and women after being subdued for so long, transforming into something nihilistic?

Once you get accustomed to killing there is no turning back. Most have a natural barrier to taking another life. Once you have been desensitized, it's easy. That makes a "Good Military Person". Kill at will/whom ever u view the enemy. From my experience in the military they don't have a "Real" programmed set up to help those re-adjust that have been trained to kill without feeling. So the answer to your question is "Yes", It can/does make your crazy.

I agree. I also am troubled by the fact that we do not see Nidal Hassan's action as an extension of the war in Iraq and Afaganistan. Why do we not morn the "collateral damage" consisting of the millions of innocent woman, children, elderly etc., that our soldiers have murdered in those countries? Is it when we do it, its "collateral damage" and when they do it-it's murder????

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
