1-in-10 US Iraq veterans have stress disorder: study - Yahoo! News

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060228/us_nm/iraq_health_dc

Those who have viewed the war photos that have been posted can understand the mental stress of our military personnel seeing this upclose and personal, including the death and maiming of their buddies. Many of these soldiers and marines are in their twenties or fresh out of high school. Coupled with the rigors and terrors of combat plus the horrific scenes of dead and mutilated human beings, it is no wonder they sufffer stress disorders. The "Marlboro Man" was only 19 years old during the Battle of Fallujah.

And I have not posted the most horrific photos, cautious of the sensibilities of the readers. Only the men themselves know what unspeakable scenes they have witnessed.
