Efforts to Reduce PTSD Stigma

From the Army News Service:

Army Surgeon General Lt. Gen. (Dr.) Kevin C. Kiley toured medical facilities Monday and Tuesday at forts Richardson and Wainwright, and spoke about healthcare initiatives in Alaska and Army-wide.

“We really need to do for our Soldiers and families what we do for our helicopters and Strykers,” Kiley said. “We bring those things back and we strip down every nut and bolt, we pull the power train and we go through that thing and we reset it.”

“We ought to be doing that with every Soldier starting with the brigade and battalion commanders and sergeant majors all the way down.”
