We Serve

“….There’s a lot of reluctance to acknowledge psychological problems for fear of showing weakness…I believe we have to give a (mental health) screening to everybody to help remove the stigma of raising your hand…Leaders must lead on this issue or it will affect us dramatically down the road…I think PTSD is a bigger problem than we know.”

—Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, USA TODAY, October 13, 2008
