I appreciate all that our men and women in uniform do for our country, and especially in the context of war. I believe that the Pentagon should do all it possibly can for those who return home with psychological wounds and emotional trauma (though I will confess to having an aversion to the relatively new PTSD label).
But this, this is just too much. It denigrates and diminishes the recognition we pay to those who come home physically scarred by direct engagement with the enemy.
Please, let's find another way to honor the service and treat the mental/emotional wounds of our soldiers, airmen, and sailors. Bestowing a Purple Heart is not the way.
