This is how our troops are being treated. The politicians love the troops before they send to war. But when they come home, our servicemen and women are discarded.
Not all veterans who have served this country have been served well in return. Many come home to their families injured and traumatized from witnessing the unimaginable. Still, many desire to continue serving by taking jobs in the federal government.
But a troubling trend is emerging for veterans in the federal workforce who seek mental health services to manage the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder: Federal managers encourage our veterans to seek mental health services but then suspend security clearance, move them to administrative roles, label them unfit for duty, or fire them outright.The Hill, opinion piece
