Mental Health Disorders Among Veterans. Scott wrote this speech in a two-fold manner. The first part was to elicit strong emotional reaction to the invisible wounds of war. The second part was used to educate and promote awareness of mental health issues for veterans. Scott stresses the importance of using controversial or hard-hitting language in the opening of speeches. Though the person for which he wrote this speech for generally shied away from this format, Scott was able to put the punches into the speech later in the body which served both the needs of the audience and for whom he wrote for.
