There was one article that really hit home this issue, I received the issue in November, so Remembrance Day was very much present at the time when I read it. The article "The Enemy Within" was a great read about how far to often we overlook the mental health of the era and focus far to much on the physical aspect. With mental health playing a huge role in current events it was nice to make a connection to the past and how it wasn't all courageous knights and gallant heroes. I thought the author did a great job of providing sources to prove his point that there was in fact a place for mental health care in this time period. Kudos to Mr. Burfield for shedding light on a subject that is far to often over looked.
All in all, another great issue. Can't wait for the next one. Keep up the good work. (Posted on 11/18/2014)
