Oh, boy.
I’m not so sure I like the idea of any more crazies slipping through the military filter into civilian life-
how many of the recent headliners are those of ex-military with mental history?

According to the New York Times:
Veterans account for 13 percent of the adult population, but more
than a third of the adult perpetrators of the 43 worst mass killings since 1984 had been in the United States military. It is clear that, in the
etiology of mass killings, military service is an important risk factor.

And now with the recent incident in Texas, another troubled young man with military ties.

Hmmm…


WASHINGTON – People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to
join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

The decision to open Army recruiting to those with mental health conditions comes as the service faces the challenging goal of recruiting 80,000 new
soldiers through September 2018. To meet last year’s goal of 69,000, the Army accepted more recruits who fared poorly on aptitude tests, increased the
number of waivers granted for marijuana use and offered hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses.

Expanding the waivers for mental health is possible in part because the Army now has access to more medical information about each potential recruit,
Lt. Col. Randy Taylor, an Army spokesman, said in a statement.

The Army issued the ban on waivers in 2009 amid an epidemic of suicides among troops.

“The decision was primarily due to the increased availability of medical records and other data which is now more readily available,” Taylor’s
statement to USA TODAY said.
“These records allow Army officials to better document applicant medical histories.”

And then my conspiracy senses start tingling, and it suddenly looks all too convenient for those who would be interested in ‘recruiting’ a patsy or
two.
