Welcome to PTSD Combat

If you're a veteran or current service member, first let me start off by saying THANK YOU for your service to our country.

Welcome Home!

”After wars’ end, soldiers once again become civilians and return to their families to try to pick up where they left off. It is this process of readjustment that has more often than not been ignored by society.” – Major Robert H. Stretch, Ph.D in Textbook of Military Medicine: Vol. 6 Combat Stress

It is in times of war that the plight of the warrior is most in focus, when a typically disinterested public once again begins to gaze upon the interests of those who wear the uniform. It’s also a time to reconfirm our responsibility as a nation to the care and support of those who served their country.

In addition to welcoming our military members and families to this new blog dealing with combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to researchers, reporters, and others interested in joining with me to shine a light on this issue. It is, when looking at the depth and gravity of the problem, vastly overlooked by most media outlets.

But it is not going away.

PTSD Combat aims to be a clearinghouse for information on combat-related PTSD. Please join the debate. Please demand more from our media. Please contact your elected representatives and ask them to pay more attention to this and other veterans' issues.

And finally, please let me know what information or resources you're looking for. I hope PTSD Combat can help educate and inform you on an issue that affects us all: service member, military family, community, and nation.

Let's get started...
