Given the recent shootings at Fort Hood, do you think returning military personnel are offered enough mental health services?

“Mental health issues should be treated as health issues and not stigmatized. Not enough resources are allocated to those suffering mental health issues in the civilian community. On military bases it’s probably worse. I can’t imagine there are many more resources there, and they experience the stresses of life and death routinely.”

Scott Hartman, Princeton

“The organization “Children of the American Revolution” is sponsoring a program called War Dogs that gives trained dogs to help soldiers suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. Maybe this would’ve helped the soldier at Fort Hood.”

Beverly Larson, Princeton

“I think that any person that serves our country should receive all the help they need when they are put in difficult situations that they’ve never experienced before.”

Lois Peterson, Princeton

“I’m not sure. I really don’t know what they receive.”

Nancy Gillfillan, Putnam

“Anyone who has experienced trauma or loss should be offered and receive as much mental health support as they need.”

Diana Williamson, Henry
