    I'm sorry. Thank you for your service. :unitedstates:

    It makes me angry that there is so little done to help soldiers once they come home. Not just physically, but mentally. I don't believe that depression or PTSD mean you are weak. I think it means you have suffered a major trauma. You are still a strong person, it's not a character flaw.
