Still Your Captain: Mark Farner today

Mark Farner is on the phone from his northwestern Michigan home, the day after Memorial Day. It is also two days after a U.S. Army veteran, possibly suffering from PTSD and depression, went on a shooting spree in west Houston that killed one, wounded others and resulted in his own death at the hands of police.
When not preaching the gospel of meat-and-potatoes rock and roll as the ex-lead singer/guitarist/main songwriter of Grand Funk Railroad or the gospel of Jesus Christ as a devout Christian, Farner talks a lot about veterans and veterans' issues, issues he had long been involved with. And he's pissed about what he sees today.
So, if he had a magic wand to do one thing for returning U.S. servicemen and women, what would it be?
"I would welcome them with loving, open arms and have people that are qualified to counsel and minister to these boys and women who have been in this nightmare," he says. "They were programmed to accept war. When you engage in real combat, it's not what they saw on a television, or the movies, or video games. But when a guy sees his best friend in the sand and it's soaking up the blood and he's gone...that's reality."By Bob RuggieroWednesday, June 8, 2016 at 7 a.m.
