The Army Will Make a Man of You

Hundreds of veterans, including many who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, are being denied vital help by the government to cope with the psychological fallout of war.

Despite ministerial pledges to improve support for British soldiers suffering mental health problems, veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are still not receiving funding for specialist medical treatment.


They don't sound very greatful for the "brave soldier boys" do they, since they have left them to stew in psychological problems? Do something heroic, they give you medals; get ill because war isn't particularly natural, they tell you to get lost.
