"When you present yourself saying that you are there to protect the protesters from the police, you are asking for trouble. No sympathy will be found here. The police are not part of some wall street conspiracy, they are working class men and women,…"

"I don't mean to call the kid out. But it is unlikely. The two branches are actually separate. By that I mean if you are an active duty guy, its active duty and if you are reservist then you are a reservist. You can not bounce between the…"

""I am crazy hyper vigilant, over-aggressive, and very angry." This. From my own observations this is really what PTSD is. It's the inability to "unwind" after living for a year in a combat zone. A lot of guys use alcohol as…"

Since then, I have been trying to create a site where vets who made it back from down-range and learned to cope and share their knowledge so that others may benefit and so no vet gets left behind.

Dan Wilden replied to Shaun Daws's discussion Question of the day #28 in the group Philosophers
"thats not new..... dehumanization and demonification have been part of the psychology of war since its outset. By making the enemy less like yourself it is easier to live with the horrors of war."
