    Obama: More post-traumatic stress help for vets - Health - Mental health - msnbc.com

    "I don't think our troops on the battlefield should have to take notes to keep for a claims application," the president said. "And I've met enough veterans to know that you don't have to engage in a firefight to endure the trauma of war."

    Veterans advocates and some lawmakers have argued that it sometimes could be impossible for veterans to find records of a firefight or bomb blast.

    Bush, the hated, ordered all VA's to remain open until 9 PM to allow longer hours to treat these people. He ordered more doctors more staff and more time spent on the issue. He ordered the military to allow active duty to use civilian doctors if the local command did not have enough support.

    In my area Camp Lejeune hired more civilian doctors to treat for this problem. They allow Active Duty to use civilian providers with no hassle.

    I lost my psychiatrist to the base because of this and had to find another. he place I use has hired extra staff JUST to treat active duty.

    Are we going to fault Obama for ordering more help for vets?

    I'm not sure how getting more help to our veterans is a bad thing.

    Someone wanna explain that to me?

    And you're a whiny little faggot of epic proportions.

    I was kidding you fucking dumb ass. Like I'm really against medical care, of ANY kind, for vets.

    You don't even joke about that. Considering your track record though, who knows if you're joking or merely backtracking. Though you couldn't help but use yet another slur in another post? Sad.
