The soldier was on watch in his bunker. He was relaxing while he kept his eyes on the wired fences. It was a clam night and it seemed serene and peaceful.

Then all hell broke loose. It wasn’t a ground attack it was from the air. The vietcong were shooting everything they had into the compound. The soldier heard screaming, but he was taught to keep his down while the bombs came in.

Finally it stopped. The soldier slowly rose his head over the edge of the trench, and what he saw put him into shock. He could see many of his buddies lying dead, or badly wounded.

The screams were overbearing. The blood was everywhere.

The soldier finished his tour and thought he was free of the war, but little did he know his personal war was just starting. He started battling PTSD.

He was sent to a special VA clinic that allows the veterans to actually live there and get treated. He saw doctors every day. He was counseled on a regular basis. There was no improvement. His battle now was why did he live and so many friends die. A typical question from thousands of veterans seeking help for PTSD.

This story is based on Truth. Much of what I wrote I learned from this very soldier I wrote about. I interviewed him. It was hard on both of us.

There are thousands of similar stories to this one. PTSD is a horrible affliction that way too many of our brothers and sisters have to fight.

If you are battling PTSD, I feel your pain. I reach out to you, and want you to know I am praying for you and all other afflicted veterans.
