    You're not defending a murderer are you MM? So he had a dangerous job, he killed 3 people and injured a lot more. There's no excuse on earth for what he did. I do agree that the VA takes some blame for this.

    I have not defended this guy in any way and never will. There is no excuse for what he did. That was in response to your post that sounded like you didnt think truck drivers could be in any danger or have PTSD, which is not true.

I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."

    I don't believe the VA has any or should take any blame for this. The guy was on active duty and had no connection or dealing with the VA. The VA's role is to assist and help Veterans, not active duty personnel. If ANYONE dropped the ball, it was the active duty people on post at Ft. Hood, and I'm not sure any of them did.

    That's not what I meant, truck drivers were targeted that's true. But according to the news media he wasn't.

    You're probably right Cowboy, you know more about the VA than I do. I was just repeating what I heard & read in the news.

    I cant see how this would have involved the VA in any way since he was on active duty but its probably not much different when your on active. They could have atleast gave him a week off when his mother died. I doubt it would have made any difference in his unit if he was gone 2 days or 2 weeks.

    The sad thing is that our government isn't doing enough for our warriors coming home! This guy had issues, and I'm not sticking up for him either. I'm a father of a soldier w ho made it thru Iraq with one Purple Heart and is doing just fine. God bless the ones affected by the terrible loss of life.
