"It's not because the help is not there. It's that they are too afraid and this is why they're afraid because this is what's happening to people. They are getting in trouble for getting help." Felicia Miller
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. -- A wife of a Fort Campbell soldier is calling for change.

She says soldiers should be able to ask for help without getting in trouble. Her husband has PTSD and got demoted for having homicidal thoughts.

According to documents, the soldier went to the emergency room on post to get help and the doctor reported what he said to his superiors.
