Post-traumatic stress vets live by Benning firing ranges | ajc.com
Post-traumatic stress vets live by Benning firing ranges | ajc.com: Across the street from
their assigned housing, about 200 yards
away, are some of the Army infantry's
main firing ranges, and day and night,
several days each week, barrages from
rifles and machine guns echo around
Strickland's building. The noise makes
the wounded cringe, startle in their
formations, and stay awake and on edge,
according to several soldiers interviewed
at the barracks last month. The gunfire
recently sent one soldier to the emergency
room with an anxiety attack, they said.
ain't that just the way to get these guys well?
Who am i, what am i
A picture's worth
I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.
