Subject: A complex topic, indeed

Putting the blame on the leaders won't change what is fundamentally wrong with individuals.
Agreed. And I've thought about this part of the puzzle time and again, Cricket. One among the many jigsaw pieces is where I question how stretched we are with our military through commanding choices, the numbers of stories and exposes showing less than honorable recruiting practices. Heck, even with the best, most bright, well-trained and stable, we're speaking of dear human beings who may be the most strong, yet are so frail. Every one's breaking point may differ.

Maybe I'm alone in this passion for now: my focus and sad heart moments hold a concern toward how we are caring for our own in the military. Through personal experience I've graded A+ in places and close to a flunking grade in others.
