Fort Hood Shootings Could Stymie Veteran Hiring

“‘PTSD is the big giant elephant in the boardroom that a lot of people worry about but nobody talks about,’ Croft explained. ‘Are they [veterans] going to shoot up the workplace? Are they going to be disruptive?’

That concern assumed greater urgency last week after a solider with a history of mental illness went on a rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, killing three people and wounding 16 others with a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson semi-automatic pistol before he took own life. The shooter, Spec. Ivan Antonio Lopez, a 34-year-old military truck driver and Iraq veteran, had been taking medication for anxiety and depression, but he wasn’t viewed by doctors or his superiors as a threat.”
