    •  The best way to get out of depression (0+ / 0-)

      is to have a cause or a goal important enough to work through the depression to accomplish.  If he can jiu-jitsu the attention he's receiving into becoming a spokesman for ridding the military of its militant christian fundamentalism, he can watch his cause turn into activism and perhaps result in real change.

      If that doesn't cure his depression it will certainly offer distraction from it.
