Daniel Somers was clearly suffering from severe PTSD.
My mind is a wasteland, filled with visions of incredible horror, unceasing depression, and crippling anxiety, even with all of the medications the doctors dare give. Simple things that everyone else takes for granted are nearly impossible for me. I can not laugh or cry. I can barely leave the house. I derive no pleasure from any activity. Everything simply comes down to passing time until I can sleep again.
The note also alleges more torture and war crime activity than has been revealed.
During my first deployment, I was made to participate in things, the enormity of which is hard to describe. War crimes, crimes against humanity. Though I did not participate willingly, and made what I thought was my best effort to stop these events, there are some things that a person simply can not come back from. I take some pride in that, actually, as to move on in life after being part of such a thing would be the mark of a sociopath in my mind. These things go far beyond what most are even aware of.
To force me to do these things and then participate in the ensuing coverup is more than any government has the right to demand. Then, the same government has turned around and abandoned me.
Somers does not elaborate any further on these crimes and coverups. He also complains that doctors are not treating his pain effectively due to concerns over pain med misuse.
War destroys people, even many of those who survive it. Somers cites that 22 veterans are killing themselves every day. "That is more veterans than children killed at Sandy Hook, every single day."
