Former Army physician Mike Simpson, who served more than three decades in the military, told the Daily Caller Foundation, " 'Few people would argue that military life is stressful, and can expose any weakness in a person's mental armor,' Dr. Simpson said. 'This is particularly true today, as we are engaged in a dynamic and asymmetrical war on terror throughout the globe. Today, more than ever, we need to be recruiting the most mentally and physically resilient recruits possible for our military. Now is not a time to lower standards. On the contrary, mental and psychological screening should be even more stringent.'
