Support 'Survivor Corps' this Veterans Day
Dani Sevilla emails me with a request that we inform our readers of the excellent work they're doing over at Survivor Corps:
Today is Veteran's Day, and our troops need our help now. Which is why I'm asking you to honor their service by blogging about Survivor Corps' program for U.S. veterans and service members, Operation Survivor. I've put together this informational microsite which explains everything: More than 30,000 of our returning veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq are suffering silently from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other psychological problems.
"These traumatic affects of conflict, left unaddressed, could have far-reaching negative consequences for the individuals affected, their families, and our country. Survivor Corps’ work in some of the most conflict affected countries in the world has shown community reintegration to be the key factor in those that overcome their traumatic experiences, and those that are consumed by them." This Veterans Day, it is fitting that we remember not only those who gave their lives in defense of freedom, but those who are suffering as a result of their service to our country. I know you will remember these brave servicemen and women in your prayers.
