Wednesday I was talking with a friend on the phone. His son directs a medical unit in Kuwait. Even though the observations and opinions from the son to the father are well filtered, the concern for the mental and emotional health of US troops was obvious. The recent exposure of conditions at Walter Reed provides another reminder of the cost of war. The crippling and lasting mental/emotional scars certainly have to be added to the total cost of our war in Iraq. The price tag is a lot more than dollars and deaths.
