Army Specialist Eugene Cherry, 24, developed signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) while in Iraq. In June, 2005, he sought help from his superiors. When he couldn’t get it, he went AWOL to deal with his depression and anxiety. The military sought to demote, dishonorably discharge and imprison Eugene for trying to salvage his mental health. But in July, 2007 he was honorably discharged without court-martial. Cherry had been supported by Iraq Veterans Against the War, psychiatrists and lawyers.
