It is a good program. It helps guys that otherwise might give up or at the least always have that nagging feeling they do not belong or fit it with civilian life. Telling them to man up or get over it and move on, or sending them to therapy, or drugs to deal with it is a band aid. Unless you have lived on the razors edge, or tried to put your comrade back into one piece oozing guts and all you cannot know what these guys go through. I have walked both sides of this coin, serving and losing comrades, then doing Funeral Detail and looking into the eyes of the loved ones they left behind. Everyone responds differently to it. A one size fits all fix does not and will never exist.
