    I am not quite clear on what pisses you off. How is he being treated badly? Do you have personal expierence with this issue or did you just see it on TV? As a veteran and the husband of a VA employee I would say our vets get treated pretty darn good. Do you know what the Post 9/11 GI bill is? Not to shabby.
    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    PTSD

    I an a Nam vet that went through issues with PTSD - I also am a licensed mental health professional and CCW holder. The talk to your lawyer first is good advice. Then find someone like me and have them clear you. In talking with your doctor sounds like you did. I have written letters for about five of my clients that they are not dangerous to self or others and that usually works on the mental health end. This all is a result of decisions and policy being made by those ignorant of the real issue but having enough power to do it anyway. That is what pisses me off - just in case anyone is wondering.

    I was diagnosed with PTSD 20 years ago. It has never affected me and should not affect you. It is a treatable medical condition not a mental illness.
