Fort Hood Shooting
Jamail is the author of "The Will to Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He just wrote "Mass Shooting Indicates Breakdown of Military."
Glantz is an editor at New America Media and author of "The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle Against America's Veterans."
He just wrote the piece "After Fort Hood: Count All the Dead," which states: "Perhaps the most depressing aspect of Thursdayâ€™s shoot-out at Fort Hood is that none of the 12 [now 13] people who died in the melee will be counted as casualties of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. ...
"Missing are the names of service members, like Sgt. Gerald Cassidy, First Warrant Officer Judson E. Mount, or Spc. Franklin D. Barnett, who died stateside after receiving substandard medical care for wounds sustained in the war zones. ...
"Missing, too, are the names of American soldiers and veterans who have killed themselves after serving a tour in Iraq or Afghanistan, people like 19-year-old Spc. John Fish of Paso Robles, California who told his superiors [and others at Fort Hood] he was thinking of killing himself after his first deployment, but was ordered overseas a second time anyway."
