★ There are at least 300 Veterans on death row, representing about 10 percent of the nation's death row population.
★ Four out of five Veterans reported recent symptoms of PTSD 20-25 years after Vietnam.
★ In a study of Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan diagnosed with PTSD or major derpression, only about half had received treatment in the past year.
★ For a small but significant number of Veterans returned from Vietnam, Afghanistan and the Middle East with PTSD, their mental wounds contribute to their
committing act of violence and they are now on death row; many others with similar problems have already been executed.

Books by Dale Recinella
Dale’s first book compares biblical teaching about the death penalty, including such passages as "eye for eye, tooth for tooth, life for life," with the nation's current system of capital punishment, and offers persuasive arguments for a faith-based moratorium on -- and eventual abolition of -- executions.
Dale’s second book, a personal sharing of his journey to death row and his experiences of death row ministry:
Now I Walk on Death Row: A Wall Street Finance Lawyer Stumbles into the Arms of a Loving God (Chosen Books, April 2011)
is available for order through Amazon.com in paperback and on Kindle.
It is also available in Italian under the title: Nel braccio della morte
(released in Italy by San Paolo Edizioni, January 1, 2012).
Now it is also available in French under the title: Couloir de le Mort, Chemin de vie - Un avocat financier de Wall Street se découvre dans l'amour de Dieu
