that's so sad. i hope america gives veterans with PTSD the help they need. and not only them, but their families too, because they are the main support groups for these returning men and women.

I live with PTSD. I am glad you did a story on this. Its a horrible thing to have. And I have wondered about our soldiers and all they have seen. Thanks for posting this and doing this story. I am going to pray that the soldiers out there get the help they deserve and require.
