Army Leadership Failure


Christopher Mosier, a former soldier from Des Moines, Iowa, witnessed an explosion in Iraq in which several of his friends burned to death. He came home suffering from schizophrenic-type delusions. He was diagnosed with personality disorder and discharged in the spring of 2006. After paying back his signing bonus, he left base with a debt of $1,712. Mosier died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Oct. 2, 2006. Linda Mosier does not believe her son had a personality disorder. "They take a normal kid, he comes back messed up, then nobody was there for him when he came back," Linda said. "They discharged him so they didn't have to treat him."
