The tragedy of losing troops who "lose heart" and commit suicide should be a wakeup call to the Spiritual Warfare nature of this ongoing conflict with Islamic Jihad! The Muslims acknowledge this dimension: they curse the American Government, its leaders and its armed forces at every service in every Mosque around the world, (including the United States!) Yet the Official stance of the Government is "Well, we don't do the Spiritual thing!"
Just because we choose not to believe in such things does not mean the curses are ineffective! It's like an Army saying "we don't do artillery" or "gentlemen don't read each other's mail" and shutting down intelligence gathering!
When it comes to addressing this issue, nothing is really being done. The Army has a program put together by academic psychologists, run by non-combatant female officers, that take the returning combat veterans to hotels with their spouses to "dialogue and communicate". But this does nothing to address the PTSD and to restore men's warrior hearts! In fact, its principal outcome has been to provide wives with more ammunition with which to accuse the returning veterans, making things worse!
A more effective program is Operation Restored Warrior(ORW) <http://www.operationrestoredwarrior.org/>. Unlike the Army's, this is a Faith Based program put together by former Warriors that heal and restores men's hearts by addressing the Spiritual Warfare nature of the attack upon them and then cleansing them! It is 100% effective!
If we had been able to get the young Medic mentioned in your article to Operation Restored Warrior, he would be alive today. In fact, when I went through the ORW in March 2010, we DID have a JSOC Medic who was suffering in exactly the same manner! He was completely restored.
