Hanging out with his Marine friends and letting them all decompress together is pretty much the best thing for him. Counseling, medication, etc are all things that will treat the symptoms, but until he and his friends are able to collectively work through whatever it is that is bothering them, then it will always be there. You can't make him better, and he won't get better when you want him to; I know it sucks, but that's how it is.

The minstrel boy to the war is gone,

And his wild harp slung behind him;
"Land of Song!" said the warrior bard,
"Tho' all the world betray thee,
One sword, at least, thy rights shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee!
