George W Bush's legacy:

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation.

One out of every two Iraq/Afghanistan veterans personally knows a service member who attempted or committed suicide 

That's... Horrifying.
