‘Over the past month there has been a lot of bad news about the military industry. We heard the news of the hanging. Soldier jumping from building Due to mental illness or anxiety is good. The Military Commission is therefore preparing to bring a group of psychiatrists to meet with these groups of people. To serve as a rolling model for the Ministry of Defense to look at as examples for improvement. As of right now, we still cannot cancel the military draft. The best we can do is protect our personnel. Both dignity and safety Including a space for families and peace of mind that members of the House of Representatives That which belongs to our fellow citizens will be on our side.
