Wednesday, June 08, 2005 - Soldiers' divorce rates up sharply

By Gregg Zoroya, USA TODAY
The number of active-duty soldiers getting divorced has been rising sharply with deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq.

The trend is severest among officers. Last year, 3,325 Army officers' marriages ended in divorce — up 78% from 2003, the year of the Iraq invasion, and more than 3 1/2 times the number in 2000, before the Afghan operation, Army figures show. For enlisted personnel, the 7,152 divorces last year were 28% more than in 2003 and up 53% from 2000. During that time, the number of soldiers has changed little.

The Army has no comparable data for past wars.

Family values, from bushco?

I'm afraid we're going to have a wave of post-traumatic stress disorder as well that'll be horribly reminiscent of those poor people who suffer to this day from Viet Nam, Korea & WW2. I'm reminded of the opening scenes in the movie "Saving Private Ryan" at Omaha Beach. No one should have to experience that sh*t because "fat cats" are playing a world domination/ground acquisition game.

And now we've got depleted uranium to replace agent orange.

If we can't screw up lives mentally, physically is the second best shot. War is Hell.
