Camp Lejeune`s Sickness and Unexpected Déjà Vu

The people who fight this battle every day are ill veterans and family members. They have no champion, no General, no Admiral.

PTSD & Alcoholism in a Real American WWII War Hero
Arthur `Dutch` Schultz, 82nd Airborne 505 PIR

The life challenges of a soldier.

(PHILADELPHIA) - Arthur 'Dutch' Schultz "HUT - TWO - three - four. Hut - two - three - four." The cadence of my childhood.

Echoing footsteps on the wooden floors. Memories of a spindly, pale child with purplish under-eye circles marching behind her athletic, paratrooper dad. Up and down the narrow Philadelphia rowhouse steps, past the shoebox-sized bedrooms, the stark no-sink bathroom, and the musty coal bin, the 6-year-old girl's mission was to not give up - just like Dad.

In 1943, I even read that there were about 15% “”Battle Neurosis” casualties in America’s invasion of N. Africa. The Army even sent a medical doctor Brigadier General to N. Africa to investigate...
