BUREAUCRATS AND WOUNDED WARRIORS

We continue to encounter hard-hearted units  which fail to treat Iraq/Afghanistan returnees with respect.  This is especially so concerning medical problems, particularly PTSD.

 The following quote from a World War I participant summarizes the age-old problem well.   Paul Nash was a British artist.  He served with England’s Royal Hampshire Regiment,  sent to paint pictures in the war zone.   Sadly, it suggests that,  after 100 years,  we still decline to treat our warriors with respect and concern.

 Bitterly, Mr. Nash wrote:

 I’m no longer an artist,  interested and  anxious.  I am a messenger who will bring back word from the men who are fighting to those who want the war to go on forever.  Feeble, inarticulate, will be my message, but it will have a bitter truth, and may it burn in their lousy souls.

Paul Nash, artist  [1899 – 1946].
