A Jim Gourley responds to a guest poster on Tom Ricks’ blog, and elaborates on PTSD:
‘I give all due respect to the shrinks and counselors. They’re doing their best. But with all due respect, their best is nothing but best guesses. Because this isn’t scientific. It’s spiritual.’
An eye-opening read. As a civilian, I’ll only say “thank you for your service,” and leave it at that. The people back home do think about you and your sacrifice, PTSD or not.
Thanks to a reader for the link.
