Submission to President Obama: State of the Union Q&A (January 24th, 2012)

As a retired Air Force officer, combat veteran, disabled veteran, and licensed professional counselor (since 1991) I am not surprised many of the hundreds of thousands of young men and women who have served in Iraq/Afghanistan came home with PTSD, TBI, and other disorders, but are EXTREMELY hesitant to seek help and treatment. 
Until the Commander-in-Chief, JCS, Service Secretaries, and chain of command (in all services) STOP THE RETALIATION and END THE NEGATIVE STIGMA associated with mental health treatment in the military, our young men and women ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO AVOID TREATMENT, SUFFER, AND COMMIT SUICIDE!
TAKE OFF YOUR BLINDERS and give our airmen, soldiers, seamen, and Marines 100% confidentiality in mental health treatment and EDUCATE THE BROWNSHOES who keep this ridiculous schema alive. Follow CombatCounselor and @CombatCounselor on Twitter for more information and updates.
Mr. President, Will you work to put an end the negative stigma attached to military mental health care and the associated unprecedented SUICIDE rate among military members/veterans because they are afraid to ask for the help the so richly deserve?
