The Washington Post recently published the latest installment in a series about the care and treatment given by the Pentagon to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The story about the pending court martial of 1st Lt. Elizabeth Whiteside for mental illness has sparked public outcry, including a letter from NAMI to the Secretary of the Army.
