While St. McCain is busy saying this, there is another grim tale that is lurking in the depths of this wars reality. If McCain is not worried about bringing the troops home, I wonder if this is a concern. Judging by the condition of Walter Reed (where I recommended he donate his 58K yearly disability check), I doubt that he cares too much about the soldiers after they come home. After all, he ditched his first wife for a rich blond, why can't these guys?
"Suicides among active-duty soldiers rose to 115 last year, a 13 percent increase over the previous year, say top Army officials. The overall increase in numbers is troubling to Army officials, who are grappling with how to respond. They are offering more training to soldiers, sergeants and chaplains to help them spot the warning signs that a soldier is considering suicide."
Any amount of suicide is too much. It's time we start paying attention to our vets.
