With the Army stretched thin by low enlistment and ongoing wars on multiple fronts, the Pentagon has had to extend normal tours of duty from 12 to 15 months, with many soldiers being sent back into war zones multiple times.

After reports last year exposed high rates of post-traumatic stress syndrome among returning soldiers, the Army has bolstered it's mental health programs. Officials report that approximately 35 percent of soldiers seek some form of mental health treatment within a year of returning home.
