Ex-POW Writes Book

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100203/.../us_pow_memoir


I ind the last few paragraphs of this article MOST interesting and thought-provoking.

Especially when I compare it to my feelings about Iraq then, and even now.

The backdrop of it all-- the article changes some things in my own mind.

Re: Ex-POW Writes Book

I hope y'all are praying regularly for all of those in the military.

I would also like to encourage you to pray for healing for those in the military and for all of our veterans.

--1 out of every 4 homeless persons in the U.S. is a veteran but vets are only 11 percent of the adult population

--45 percent in the VA's homeless programs have a diagnosable mental illness and more than 3 out of 4 have a substance abuse problem. 35 percent have both a mental illness and a substance abuse problem.

--Iraq war vets seeking help are more likely to be women, less likely to have substance abuse problems, but more likely to have mental illness --mostly related to post traumatic stress.

Re: Ex-POW Writes Book

I would never want to be a POW and in my mind, I thought it would be even worse to be a femaly POW.

I guess it would depend on the morals of your enemy.

"Morals" and "enemies" within the context of the Iraq War in 2003 would never have been a matter of discussion.
