Military Headline News: Deadly Insider Attack, PTS Protocols Still Not Right


Rick Rogers – Military Headline News


  • There’s been another deadly insider attack on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Two service members were killed and several wounded when a police officer turned a machine gun on them. The last such attack happened earlier this year.

  • Despite a decade of treating Post Traumatic Stress, we still don’t have it right.

Confounding paperwork, inconsistent training and incompatible data systems are all hindering efforts to deal with PTS, according to the Army.

  •  If the last decade has taught us anything, it’s that the U.S. military can’t function without its citizen-soldiers. Yet, widespread job discrimination plagues National Guardsmen and Reservists.

Businesses routinely violate the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, according to new testimony before Congress.

  •  The same standards for the same work. That’s what a California congressman proposes for women seeking combat roles.

Rep. Duncan Hunter wants to close a federal loophole that might hold women to lesser physical standards.
