Is this officer at a low, medium, or high risk for suicide?.
Do you think this officer’s PTSD and survivor’s guilt prevents him, in any way, of fully carrying out his duties? Why or why not?
Assuming that, following treatment, this Captain returns to duty and proves himself to be an effective leader, do you think this incident should negatively impact his OER? Why or why not?
In terms of maintaining his standing with his Soldiers, what do you think would be this Captain’s best course of action?
Once an officer develops significant emotional problems, such as those demonstrated by this Captain, is he or she of any further use to the Army? Can an officer resume the position of authority he/she previously had? Why not just discharge all these people out of the service?
