June 12, VCS Suggests Watching PBS Special About Military’s Misuse of Personality Disorder Discharges for Wounded Iraq War Veterans

Public Broacast System

Is the military wrongfully discharging soldiers in order to deny them benefits?

Veterans for Common Sense encourages you to watch a PBS News special on Friday, June 13.   The show, “Now,” is a collaboration between PBS reporter Maria Hinojosa and Nation magazine reporter Joshua Kors.  They tell the story of Sergeant Chuck Luther, who was struck by mortar fire in Iraq, then jailed until he agreed to sign papers saying his wounds were pre-existing.  Luther is an eloquent speaker with a powerful story. VCS hopes you’ll tune in – and share this message with friends and family so they can see what’s happening to so many of our soldiers.
