PTSD 

Over the weekend, the T-P had a haunting two part series about a local man (and his brother) who became a Marine and met a very tragic end after returning home. It's a very sobering but important piece on post-traumatic stress disorder.

I may very well be mistaken, but I think that only one of them (the younger) was a marine with combat time in Iraq.

I just returned from New Mexico and I met and heard several disturbing reports of similar occurrences out there. Many of these people are just too emotionally scarred to return to normal life and present a danger to themselves and others. It is very sad and very scary.

No, you're right. I corrected the error.
