Vets Black Arm Band Day for PTSD


“Vets Black Arm Band Day for PTSD” is Wednesday March 23!! “LEAVE NO AMERICAN SOLDIER BEHIND ON THE BATTLEFIELD” was one of the first things I learned when going through Basic Training years ago. But today, America has left a half million American soldiers and veterans from the post 9-11 wars behind on the battlefield of the mind. Services for soldiers and vets with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST) are appalling. The length of counseling sessions has been cut in half nation-wide because of personnel shortages. Psychiatric and residential beds for more serious cases are scarce. Wear a black arm band Wednesday to mourn these soldiers and vets left behind in the battlefield of the mind (and tell your friends and all who will listen).
