AWOL Soldier Fights for His Right to Heal

The headline is from Iraq Veterans Against The War, who are supporting Jeff Hanks, who turned himself in today, after having gone AWOL because he wanted treatment for anxiety, and was instead getting re-deployed to Iraq.

There is commentary and a news story at The Hill.

This Veteran’s Day, Think Beyond The Parade: That’s Iraq Veterans Against the War’s message this Veterans Day, as thousands of our country’s servicemen and women suffer in silence in hospital beds, homeless shelters, chaotic family lives and even combat zones from the debilitating effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Today, as many as 50 percent of our nation’s service members who have served deployments to Iraq or Afghanistan experience PTSD and 12 to 17 percent are using some kind of psychiatric drug in the combat zones. Despite repeated statements by government officials regarding their concern for these silent illnesses, hoards of traumatized troops are redeployed or denied appropriate medical care.

U.S. Army Spc. Jeff Hanks is a perfect example…  -The Hill
