Track Palin returns again

How is Track Palin doing? By Tim Lindell
In comments the other day, Alex Raye asked "I wonder how Track Palin is doing?" This got me curious about how Private First Class Palin's unit is faring in Iraq, especially since Saturday was the day of Iraqi provincial elections. So I hope you all don't mind if I do a little bit of milblogging on this normally political blog. February 1, 2009

Lindell writes about Track's unit and his mother.
Track was home last month. Track Palin to Return Home This Weekend

Track is among the lucky, not all veterans have a home to return to.

More female veterans are winding up homeless

This is rarely mentioned: Military Prescribing Massive Amounts of Pain Medication; Punishes Those Who Become Dependent
The treatment of many of Track's peers is one of the biggest failures of the military and addiction is rampant. It is a tragic never ending problem.
Troops reportedly popping more painkillers
Narcotic pain-relief prescriptions for injured U.S. troops have jumped from 30,000 a month to 50,000 since the Iraq war began, raising concerns about the drugs' potential abuse and addiction, says a leading Army pain expert.

The sharp rise in outpatient prescriptions paid for by the government suggests doctors rely too heavily on narcotics, says Army Col. Chester "Trip" Buckenmaier III, of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington.

Numerous heartbreaking struggles are playing out across the country.
More than a year later, they still don't know if the medication their loved ones were taking for post-traumatic stress disorder contributed to their deaths.
Three other West Virginia servicemen have died in their sleep while undergoing PTSD treatment after returning from Iraq.

The Palin's have secrets and confusion surrounding birthdates, it is a little mysterious when Track was born and identification of parents is an issue with the Palins. As far as I can tell Track is now 20 years old. We think Todd is his father. It is questionable due to the lack of truth telling. Todd. ||
Track Palin birthday: Sarah Palin’s son conceived out of wedlock?
There is a rumor on Track Palin’s birthday. Sarah Heath eloped with Todd Palin on August 29, 1988. An old traffic offence record from a speeding ticket on Track CJ Palin stated his birthdate as April 20 1989.
Track prefers not to be forthright about his politics. It was mentioned he is not a Republican, he may follow Todd's thinking when it comes to party affiliations. What is he fighting for?

Our very own local (Anchorage, Alaska) talking heads discussing reports that Track Palin, son of VP nominee Sarah Palin was involved in a vandalism drinking spree in which (if true) he cut the brake lines to a number of school buses.

  1. My understanding, after reading a comment a couple of weeks ago, is that Track Palin did not fight at all -- that he was serving his term of deployment in a unit far from any war action...

    I haven't been able to substantiate that, though.

  2. Chronic pain is very severe and this affects people's life, long known to people who suffered from a strange disease, were strong back pains, which were intense and not let them work, as was what they said were the doctor and he prescribed vicodin, hydrocodone, norco for pain, but knew it was a very powerful medicine, and moreover, anxiolytics, and worry that they were doing things that previously did not like eating too much, smoking, etc, and read in findrxonline that this drug is well and that we must be very careful with their use, and everything must be under medical prescription.
