    We have soldiers committing suicide because they feel unable, due to a stifling "code" of faux-machismo and pseudo-Stoicism, to talk about what has been done to them and by them.  That's simply not acceptable.

      something, the diary is about waterboarbing at SERE school.  My response may have been a little on the blunt side, but it's valid.  That is a voluntary school.  You can quit.  You can, at any time, drop from the course.

      The school is designed to train soldiers in a high risk assignment to survive, and if captured, to survive that as well.  The school is rough by design.
