Tossing Away Combat Veterans Due to Invisible Wounds Sustained During the Course of Their Military Service - USJAG Calls on Members of Congress to Join Investigation
Last week, twelve members of the United States Senate called for an investigation into the discharge, under Other Than Honorable (OTH) circumstances, of 22,000 combat veterans of the United States Army. These soldiers, who had often served multiple tours in Iraq or Afghanistan, were diagnosed with combat-related mental health disorders and discharged without benefit of proper medical review. The Uniformed Services and Justice Advocacy Group (USJAG), the Colorado-based organization which has led the nation in the realm of advocacy on behalf of such soldiers, is calling for other members of Congress to join in the call for an investigation. Georg Andreas Pogany, the Chief Executive Officer of USJAG, notes that we have heard a great deal of hollow rhetoric with regard to "honoring the troops" and that we have further recognized the "Invisible Wounds of War" yet the drum beat which has mustered out tens of thousands of emotionally and mentally scarred combat soldiers continues unabated. Pogany asserts that the 22,000 soldiers in question represent the tip of the iceberg.
