The US Army no longer marches on its stomach

"Conducting military operations? On Seroquel? There must be some mistake, I thought. But a little research confirmed Aaron’s accounting: the United States armed forces are increasingly marching on pharmaceuticals. Twenty percent of active-duty troops are on psychotropic medications, including 17% of the combat troops in Afghanistan."

  1. Yikes! Anyone would be traumatized enduring what they do. It is a real shame.

    1. Pharma did a helluva sales job on the military. Medicating troups is a totally bizarre policy. People used to be routinely turned away from enlisting in WWII for having flat feet.


I am no longer approving comments. All I ask is that you be respectful of others and refrain from using profanity.
