June Is PTSD Awareness Month
June is PTSD Awareness Month and it’s extremely important that we do our part to raise awareness. We often show pictures of veterans and service members who have lost limbs. Not all wounds are visible. 11-20% of veterans who served in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom have PTSD. 30% of Vietnam veterans have had PTSD. In passing, we may not be able to pick out those with PTSD … which is all the more reason that we should honor and support all who have served our country.
