The drugging of our vets - a veteran speaks out about what happened to him

00:00 / 00:00

He was a U.S. Army Paratrooper and Artillery Forward Observer when he was injured in the line of duty and medically retired. Telling his story for the first time, Sergeant James Kelly details the troubles he had coming out of the military, what the multiple psychotropic and opioid drugs he was prescribed did to him, the day he decided to end it all, his cold turkey violent withdrawal from the meds, what he saw happening to other vets, the best gift his son ever gave him (also a vet), and the non-medical approach he's adopted today. An incredibly harrowing, medicated journey that no vet should have to endure. This is Part 2 of our series on The Drugging Of Our Vets.
