As we place out the flags this Memorial Day, let us not forget that the war is not over once our boys get back home.

I read the link about the problems of veterans after combat. Unfortunately this is nothing new. I was surprised to learn that even in WWII 20% or more of American casualties were psychiatric.

As the article mentioned, wars without a front, fought among civilians, without clear progress, take even more of a toll psychologically.

After WWII the Veterans Administration couldn't even deal with the physical wounds and General Omar Bradley was pressed into service to reorganize it to provide proper care. Psychological treatment was very poor.

Many military people believe the ethos of honor and duty. They are shattered when they find the military wants to discard some of them as broken parts they can no longer use and don't care to fix. When they can't fit in with their family and community they have noting left.

I realize my view is not popular, but I've studied military history extensively. A lot of combat veterans would agree with me.

War is sometimes necessary, but not as often as many people think. The full cost needs to be acknowledged and paid -- not dumped on the unfortunates ones who served with honor. We owe them too much to betray them to save a few bucks.
