National PTSD Awareness WeeK

Messages Sent So Far
A NATIONAL PTSD AWARENESS WEEK. Recovering from post traumatic stress disorder takes strength, faith, and commitment. Men and women in recovery showcase the power each of us holds to transform ourselves, our families, and our communities. As people share their stories and celebrate the transformative power of recovery, they also help dispel myths and stigmas PTSD and offer hope for the future for themselves, their families and their friends.

There are scores of people from all walks of life across America that are not aware to the harmful effects of PTSD, to families, and friends. Also, just as many that have no idea what PTSD even is: POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER. It is time to bring attention to the need for a "National PTSD Awareness" day, week or month.
Please, send an e-mail to the or friend Bob Veteran on FB.

Only 1% went to war while the 99% went to Walmart !! lhave lost two close friends to suiside they were in Vietnam !! No one has any idea what these young seen and had to do to servive !! These were very young men , can you imagine your son or daughter being given a gun and in a land where the all look the same ?? Then when they came home there was no welcome , they were treated so badly, they were ashamed to put thier service on an application for work !! We need to give these men a Welcome Home and not for a day but a week , or more !! My husband suffered from PTS (The D stands for disorder and it is not a disorder!) for 25 years he had no idea why the bad dreams , easliy anger , lack of trust , feel like he'd would jump out of his skin every time there was a loud sound , fianally he hada nervse breakdown before he was diaginost and finally could understand why he'd felt like he didn't belong! This effects the whole family, and they need support also, so many loose everyone and every thing the have , because they turn to drugs snd and booze triying to medicate themselves and get some type of relief !!! Please help make our Veterns, familys, parents know how much we Thank Them for Thier Service !'
