Thumbs down: People's house evicts people

 

As we celebrate the homecoming of U.S. troops stationed in Iraq, we must remember the baggage they'll be carrying for years to come just as a generation of soldiers before them continue to suffer - and fight the government. A $10 million federal infusion promises to bolster research on Gulf War Illness - a complicated condition with multiple and varied symptoms. But some veterans worry that a Dec. 31, 2011 deadline to report health problems related to that war will leave people with misdiagnosed or ignored cases of GWI or post-traumatic stress disorder to fester as suicides and deteriorating health continue to chip away at their ranks. Some estimates peg the number of suicides by veterans at 18 per day.
