    The Tragedy Of My Military Career....cut Short By Mental Health "professionals"

    When I was in second grade my teacher asked me what do you want to do when you grow up?  I answered I wanted to be in the military.  My father was a military man and we grew up on war movies.  As I grew older and became girly, and a little shy I would not enter...
