Did I miss an entire section devoted to the prescribing of meds to active duty soldiers to help them overcome the reality of the battlefield? If they drug-up while in the service, what is the expectation for the day when they are no longer on active duty?
Can we expect drugged up active duty soldiers to transit to civilian life with/without meds? If they are getting meds while in, then get cut off when a civilian, how does that factor into this analysis?
Although an informative article, I believe the key piece of information – their treatment while on active duty – needs to be included and addressed herein.
A “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation to be sure; but is it a 50/50 split? Will your soul be better or worse off if you keep silent? Everyone should expect to pay for their own mistakes; and not expect anyone to keep silent on a crime.
Let the appropriate people know what is happening/happened and unburden your soul. We all carry our own burdens of our history; there is no need to carry the burdens of others’ sins as well. Folks that do carry the knowledge of other peoples “problems” do so at their own mental health risk.
Tell your internal “chain of command” the story; and tell law enforcement too. Let the abuse charges fall where they may.
If you choose to remain a complicit enabler; then you are just as bad as the person committing the crime. And like the old show Baretta said – “don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time”.
