A former Marine who prefers not to be named served seven months in Iraq and two short tours in Afghanistan. He had "issues that was going on because of some of the things I saw and did over in Iraq." He saw a chaplain, checked himself into a mental institution and was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. "I told them everything I saw, everything I did – it was grounds for PTSD… most docs won't diagnose you with PTSD because the military has to treat you for the rest of your life," the former Marine said. "I tried fighting it – to stay in the Marine Corps." He got 100 percent disability payments from the state. (Unnamed Marine)
