SENTINEL WATCH

DEFEAT WARTIME NIGHTMARES

From the October 16, 2006 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


A STUDY PUBLISHED IN MARCH by researchers from the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research found that more than one third of the troops who have served in Iraq have sought help for mental problems within a year of returning home ( Los Angeles Times, May 16, 2006). That study prompted me to ask, What can I do to support these young men and women? They deserve better, I thought, after they've risked their lives in the military.
