    Careful what you say, Wabac. You don’t want to end up in the dungeon, do you?

    Does his injury mean that Rodney has earned a “Yellow Heart”? (Apologies to all combat-wounded members of the military, excluding PTSD “victims”, which is NOT a combat wound!)

    Sir Rodney has tennis-elbow from waving white flags.

    What a pity Rodney is with his injury? He carried the yellow flag? He should carry the white flag.

    What brave words we read from someone who probably never served in the military and, if he did, he certainly did not experience the horrible reality of war that some face and never get over.

    PTSD is real. It is debilitating. It is not cowardice. Brave people can be affected by it. It is almost always the direct result of a traumatic event experienced in a war zone. Are you saying that an injury in a war zone is NOT a combat wound? If so, you had better get busy demanding the return of a lot of medals whose award do not meet your criteria.

    Only cowards like you sit back in the comfort of their homes and denigrate afflicted soldiers; secure in the knowledge the “anonymous Internet” and the civil rights protected by our military will protect them from legal liability. But nothing will save you from your moral bankruptcy.

    Wabac-Way to open mouth, insert foot. I am a combat veteran. PTSD is REAL, it is not cowardice (I’m not Patton after all) it is just not a combat WOUND. It IS combat related however. BTW no intention to “turn in” my 3 Air Medals. They certainly weren’t awarded to me, in a combat zone, due to COWARDICE!

    Is it really appropriate for you to play games of semantics by disparaging PTSD in that offhand way? Playing games with words as you did does a grave disservice to your fellow servicemen and women because it lends credence to the kooks who strive to convince the unknowing public that soldiers afflicted with PTSD are “faking it” or “not injured” or “taking advantage of the system.”

    In light of the fact that you did serve, I take it as a given that such a result is not your intention. Regardless, it is inevitable that those determined to deny the reality of psychological injury will take great solace in (mis)use of your words.

    I understand the difference you wish to make between a combat and non-combat injury. You are slicing the point too fine. It is a fact that some cases of PTSD are directly the result of combat and is therefore a combat injury. I personally know a man who was serving on a supply vessel at Vietnam who witnessed several of his friends blown to bits in a split second by a bomb dropped on the deck. It devastated him and left him damaged for the rest of his life. They did not have a diagnosis called PTSD then but there was no question that he was permanently psychologically injured during combat and he was and is treated as such.

    My point to you is words are potent weapons. Like any weapon, they can turn on you if you load them incorrectly.
