Fort Hood: Four soldiers apparently killed themselves

Four soldiers from the Fort Hood Army base in Texas - all decorated veterans from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan - died in the past week, a Fort Hood spokesman said Wednesday.

In all four cases, it appears the soldiers took their own lives, spokesman Christopher Haug said.

    Jerry, I agree. Soldiers return home and need hep. Instead they are pumped full of phychiatrst's drugs. It's sad to watch them slowly fade away from the ensueing brain damage. Each year my brother gets further away from being himself, becoming some horrid walking zombie from taking these "meds". It's just sickening.

    I believe the mind control tactics on our military by black opts once using our soldiers and then disposing of them .

    I live in Clarksville, Tennessee and the suicides happening in this area is alarming (Clarksville is near Ft. Campbell, KY). When you look at the 911 call log available online, everyday there are numerous "threatening suicide" calls, and the obituaries continuously have young veterans listed.

    I was not surprised regarding the lack of details in this article based upon what is happening in my town. It is very sad.

    Each person is driven to suicide by diffrent things. Let me paint a picture for you... 19 days away from clearing fort hood and getting out of the army. Anxiously awaiting the 59 well deserved terminal leave days to prepare for the civilian life. You are called into your platoon sgts office and informed that not only are you going to be charged for post deployment leave (note: you were told at the time that these 30 days of post deployment leave would be free) but they are also planning on sending you to the 30 days of training to prepair you for iraq (altho you will not be going). This now effects your rent situation, your wifes job she has lined up back home, your moving arangments and how long you have to pack up and move. Your leave has already been approved and you have had your current plans in motion for months. Now everything changes because of a last minute decision made by the new squadren SMG... I would say this is a mild case of a stressfull situation that soldiers are put thru on a constant basis. This is what happened to me today, I am almost certain that a soldier with a not so stable state of mind would have reacted harshly to this, I would consider myself extreamly level headed and I am still infuriated over the fact that all of my plans are forced change. Soldiers are put thru situations all the time that would drive a sane person crazy
