After seeing this yesterday.......
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Overwhelmed by the number of soldiers returning from war with mental problems, the Army is planning to hire more than 25 percent additional psychiatrists and other medical workers.
It makes me wonder.....
You'll ignore existing mental problems and then hope to cure them once they've blown up all to hell? Well, that is what tonight's disclosure seems to say.....
Pentagon may drop mental health question

WASHINGTON - U.S. troops would no longer be asked to reveal previous mental health treatment when applying for security clearances under a proposal being considered by the Pentagon.
The idea stems from the finding that service members avoid needed counseling because they believe that getting it — and acknowledging it — could cost them their clearance as well as do other harm to their careers, The Associated Press has learned.
You know the way to remove the stigma of getting mental help??
STOP DISCRIMINATING AGAINST PEOPLE WHO GET MENTAL HELP.
Pentagon, my bill is in the mail.
