    I thank God for the soldiers that have fought and are fighting for mine and my family and friends freedoms. Those powers that be MUST do something to halt this tragic consequent of battle weary heros. The idea of sending civilian psychologists and mental health professionals is long over due. I believe civilian medical personnel should also be offered the opportunity to help in the military operations if they are not already doing so. God Bless the warrior citizens of this country and may angels protect them under the wings of safety.
