This same study concluded that rescreening soldiers several months after their return from Iraq identified a large cohort missed on initial screening. The large clinical burden recently reported among veterans presenting to Veterans Affairs facilities seems to exist within months of returning home, highlighting the need to enhance military mental health care during this period. Increased relationship problems underscore shortcomings in services for family members as well. Reserve component soldiers who had returned to civilian status were referred at higher rates on the PDHRA, which could reflect their concerns about their ongoing health
Veterans keep the story alive of the wars they fought in and teach the younger generations. I cannot imagine a world without veterans, the freedom lost, the patriotism missing from our hearts. Veterans have stood up for our country and helped us get some of the things we have now. They protected our nation, and without them our country may not have had a future. They kept us safe, sacrificing their lives to save ours.
Treating War’s Toll on the Mind Response Paper – By Aisha Pitt 03/12/2010 In reading this article written by Betsy Streisand it is apparent that thousands of soldiers suffer from Post Traumatic Stress disorder during and after combat. When they suffer from being traumatized during the war, and when they are still in combat, little help is made available to the soldiers and they are soon pushed back into the war before they have the chance to fully heal. When a soldier returns home with PTSD they have the inability to turn the switch from soldier to a regular citizen. They can return with depression and anxiety because they can feel like there is a complete lack of safety for them and their family. Soldiers have a hard time integrating
Our country has been at war for more than ten years. Since the horrific events of September 11th 2001, the U.S. Military and the Department of Defense have employed more than 5 million service members and have sent almost 2 million service members to serve tours of duty in and around southwest Asia. With the vast overwhelming majority of military members only enlisting for four years, the extreme influx of returning veterans reintegrating back into civilian society has exacerbated an already competitively difficult situation. Today’s veterans all face a multitude of problems that are only made worse by the depressing facts of life in present day America. They face an economic depression that limits available employment even for the most qualified applicants.
The Struggles of Military Families We feel pride when somebody joins the United States Armed Forces. It feels good to know that there are ordinary citizen, who arm themselves with bravery and courage to embrace such an extraordinary journey to defend our nation; but nothing is free in this world, not even freedom. Military families struggle with stress and anxiety due to the hectic work schedules, relocation, and deployments. The changes on the work schedule and relocation requires that military families become more flexible to adapt to rapid changes. One of the most common changes is the sudden is that of the duty hours.
We had been living in the south for about thirty years. I am married and have 4 children. My husband was a teacher and also a soldier because at that time my country need teacher to change to soldier. There was a big war again and many people died by the bomb. We couldn't count them, and the communist killed many people, and many houses burned.
Delaying this surgery for many years when I was living in Iraq, due to technical and financial problems, has had a very negative impact on my health because the problem in my knee was a reason of severe pain so I lived many years on pain killer medicine. This issue also had extremely reduced my ability of work. After I settled in the U.S, this matter was among my priorities from the very beginning. So when both my wife and I found jobs, we started seriously thinking about the surgery and it took me another four years to arrange my situation to be able to buy an affordable medical insurance through my wife’s job. Hopefully the operation will be completed successfully before the end of this
Jill Harrison English B MacDonald Doctor Assisted Death Every year in the U.S. alone, over a million people are diagnosed with a terminal illness. This means that a million people a year are told that no matter what kind of treatment or surgery they go through, they will reach they're inevitable fate: death. Unfortunately, the terminally ill are more often than not put through severe suffering with no relief from pain medication. In a country based on freedom, doctor assisted death should be made legal so that the terminally ill can choose exactly when and how they die. Doctor assisted death is a subject that is widely misunderstood by the public.
Military and Public Safety protect our everyday lives, while Teachers are the ones that give us the knowledge we need for everyday life. Military personnel definitely are the most heroic figure in my eyes. While people are here in American living the good life, we have soldiers fighting for our freedom, putting their lives on the line. Having two years in the National Guard, I have not had a chance yet at deployment. However, at all times I stand ready to accept the fact that I could receive that phone call telling me to pack my bags, I am being deployed.
