    "Since last June, Andy Kubik has been living at a VA hospital in Michigan, where he's been treated for PTSD and substance abuse.

    In the Air Force special ops, my friend Andy Kubik was the best of the best, a true American hero. As much as any one man, he was responsible for breaking the Taliban’s control of Afghanistan. But now, back at home, he’s fighting just to stay sane."

    By Matthew Teague


    "He hauled out an opaque plastic box, about the size of a suitcase. “I’ll send for it later,” he said, “but I know you’ll keep it safe.”

    Sure, Andy, I said. I’ll keep it safe.

    Later that night I lay awake and wondered: What on Earth is in that box?"

    VA hospitals ought to staff the finest mental health professionals our country can find. This man deserves no less.
