Veterans with PTSD sue Navy over claims of biased discharges

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


WASHINGTON – By the age of 21, Marine Corps Cpl. Tyson Manker led infantrymen into battle in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. His actions as a Marine garnered him the Presidential Unit Citation and other awards, yet the military doesn’t consider his service as honorable.

Manker endured intense combat, saw civilians killed and witnessed the death of a close friend – experiences that caused nightmares and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder that only worsened when he returned home. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans-with-ptsd-sue-navy-over-claims-of-biased-discharges-1.514751
