As we’re thinking of war, and hell

VSOTD reader and PR blogger John Patella made the connection before we did between the Fort Hood shootings and the recent VSOTD Speech of the Week, “Let’s Start the Stream of Psychic Healing,” delivered by Vietnam veteran Stephen T. Banko.

And as the story unfolds, the connection seems more and more solid. Major Hasan had “recently expressed deep concerns,” about his looming deployment, according to The New York Times. “Having counseled scores of returning soldiers with post-traumatic stress disorder … he knew all too well the terrifying realities of war.”
