Marine trainign rips down the old personality, rebuilds a new one that is capable of killing strangers. From What I have read, 25% of recruits of al larmed forces "snap" or have problems, and I woudl expect the recruit in either way to be dsiplaying signs of that. It is not trauma, but job training for a job where you often have to act like a sociopath. What I do nto understand, is every other country seems to have ways to "unsnap" the kid out before mustering out, except the US. Does anyone know of a method that can do it faster? Or of success? Most of them seem to take 2-3 years after deployment. My stepson sounds like Justamom's son.  If he as "othered" us, due to our family spreadinr rumors, and his alone-ness, what can we do? He threatened me the other night after I called to apologize, after speaking to Sgt., and I am still nto understanding what to do. choices offered are make a formal police report and then do the same with his CO, but I'd rather find a way to talk without his flipping out. Every time we speak for longer than 20 minutes, he is okay, goes back to his old self. Any ideas? Real ones, not like expecting the marines to have a magic guy to go see him and fix it?

I was hoping for more action on this page - have a son & friends with the problem - they came home just before Christmas.
