While on the drive home today I was listening to the news and heard this horrible story about how the VA is really just the tip of the iceberg with how we treat our veterans (what a surprise). An estimated 22,000 people have been dishonorably discharged from the armed forces since '09 even though a bill went into effect to stop the military from kicking out soldiers if they have a mental health condition. The full report is here: http://www.npr.org/2015/10/28/451146230/missed-treatment-soldiers-with-mental-health-issues-dismissed-for-misconduct
In the segment there is a soldier who was secretly recording some of his therapy sessions with what I would call pretty much people trying to get the guy to commit suicide. All I wanted to do was give a hug to the guy and take him to the local arcade to play Pinball. Really that isn't what the guy needs but it's all I could do for the guy. That's when it hit me that Project Pinball if possible could be expanded to do just that. In fact I have not really seen anything with vets or actively serving members of the military play Pinball or form clubs that comprise of such members. If your a military veteran or actively serving member, well thanks to you!
