Post Dramatic Stress syndrome?

As we know more soldiers have committed suicide last month than those killed in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. How is it that on a little patrol one gut gets killed and another gets his hand blown off these guys become scarred for life. Make no mistake I would never want to see that or wish that on any one but my grandfather fought on Iwo Jima and the stories he tells are a lot more gruesome. So my point is, could the fact that the army made boot camp so much easier it does not prepare soldiers for combat well enough? Could we make all boot camps like USMC boot camp and this wouldn’t happen?

Boot Camp is not intended to train you for war. It is a basic combat training for everyone. There isn’t any training that can prepare you for actual combat. They try, and do a pretty good job. The problem with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome is that everyone reacts differently to combat and the things they experience or see. Ptsd can happen to anyone, even in civilian life. It is the shock of a Traumatic incident that causes problems with cognitive thinking. There are a lot of ways to get help and overcome Ptsd. PTSD can also develop much later in life. Everybody handles stress and gore in a different way. Best thing is to always talk about what you have experienced. Writing about it can also help. Don’t be afraid to seek help.
