PTSD – You're Not Alone

“I’ll look weak.”
“I’ll lose my job.”
“I won’t be able to get a job.”
“No one can help.”
“People will think I’m crazy.”
“I’m not as bad as some people…I can handle it.”

Are these some of your thoughts about seeking help for the affects of war that you are experiencing? If so, you’re not alone. On the other hand, you are not alone in what you are experiencing either. Take a moment to hear from others like you….

One Testimonial to Our Vision from One Who Knows

Thank You for starting this organization for our fellow vets. Many are reluctant to go directly to the VA for help or even a national service organization. Your organization provides an alternative and a bridge.

 

When first arriving in Florida I was amazed at how many vets there were. I eat at the country clubs a lot and have had many conversations with fellow vets and their spouses. It is AMAZING how many have not filed for benefits they deserve. Several of their wives have commented to me when their husbands go for a bathroom break that the husband is having a terrible time dealing with their WW2, Korea and Vietnam service and the wife does not know what to do.

 

I try to steer the conversation subtly towards the mental health issues that vets have when they return and often hear the reply, "the VA is all screwed up" and don't want to get involved. My opinion is it is just one of the many excuses we can make up when we are in denial of needing help.

 

It is frustrating and heartbreaking to see them going through this, and especially on the wife's part. I do what I can. A few have responded positively when I suggested how to file for a claim, etc. I wish I were close enough to you guys to volunteer! Anyway, we do what we can to help our brothers in arms... Who could better understand them... Sorry I have rambled on. Thanks again...
