A reader sent me a link to something I found very moving.
Some recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor joined together to make a video PSA to encourage America’s military to seek help when adjusting to life after combat, particularly for post-traumatic stress (PTS).
You can find their website and the video here: http://www.medalofhonorspeakout.org/
I doubt very much that there is a member of the military today who doesn’t know about PTS. What I don’t doubt is that people are people, and sometimes it is very hard to bend and admit that something isn’t going right and look for help. Perhaps seeing and hearing Medal of Honor recipients talk about this so frankly will help them over come a sense that bravery means never admitting you are in pain.
The men in the video show that "Never quit." and "Don’t be defeated." don’t mean never looking for help.
Here is the video. Be sure to go over and look at that site and perhaps share it with some vets who are returning home and who may be carrying some heavy invisible wounds and have actually brought something of the enemy home with them.
There are many videos at that site. This is only one of them.
WDTPRS kudos for this fantastic initiative.
