Constitutional Emergency

Saw something I thought I'd never see tonite

I'm in a motel in Evans, GA. We've (my crew and I) have been here for a week working. There's 2 rooms between my step-father and my mother (my bosses). For several hours, we've been hearing someone beating on a door between us. About an hour ago, my mother called and said there were Army guys and cops at the room next to them. A little while later, she called back saying the cops were putting crime-scene tape up. Well, we all walked out to see what was going on. Turns out, a guy from the Army post near here committed suicide. He had been AWOL for several days. While we were outside, two of the cops were talking to each other. I heard one of them say he was having "mental problems". What I don't understand is, if someone KNEW he was having mental problems THAT BAD, why didn't they get him some help?? Apparently, the military isn't doing enough to help our guys get through the PTSD. I feel SO bad for him and his family...blood family and Army family. This really brings me and my problems into perspective.
Now, I'm thinking we've ALL been SO wrapped up in politics and the health care issue, we've put our guys and gals "in the trenches" to the side. Not that we've stopped caring, just that other things have been put ahead of them. We can't forget....if it wasn't for soldiers we wouldn't have the rights we're fighting so hard to keep now. I guess what I'm trying to say is, we've GOT to keep them in our thoughts, efforts, and PRAYERS.

Couldn't agree with you more Kim..........as I've written many times, our political leadership has abandoned our warriors and families........our military fights while America is at the mall (except those families who have loved ones in harms way).

How to post "live" URL in posts at PFA............. Adding URLs in blog posts that are not "live" is a waste of everyone's time.....
Here's how....if anyone has better guidance send to me.....
First........type your text entry into the post block to include typing or paste the URL you want us to view........when finished with the text, highlight and copy the URL in the text.......then click the "add hyperlink" tool in the B, I, U box just above the text entry, after clicking, a window will open asking for the URL...paste the URL in the box and click "OK". You have now made the URL "live"...........it shows some code before the post is published, it goes away when you "publish post".......
