Service Members ETS Unprepared for Civilian Life

Outdated does not even reach the bottom!!!!! I guarantee 99% of the suicides had no where to turn. Without health insurance coming out of the service, most thought they were on their own. They do not think with a clear vision. Each and every veteran that ETS should be evaluated by a trained Physician. At that time, should be aware of future place where they could get help. Also, veteran's should receive free medical at least five years after ETS. Why should a vet have to be qualified to receive help. I am so disgusted with VA. Half the time I don't get my meds on time. Been out for over a week now. And you wonder where the problem is. I had a mental break down in 1994, With suicidal attempts. I am one of the lucky ones and is still hard for me to cope with every day life but I give credit to God for courage to keep going.
