The PTSD Foundation of America’s Mission

To combat Post Traumatic Stress

  1. Bring healing to our military community (Active duty, Reserves and National Guard, veterans, and their families) through pastoral counseling, and peer mentoring, both on an individual basis, and in group settings.
  2. Raise awareness of the increasing needs of the military community through public events, media outlets, social media, service organizations, and churches.
  3. Networking government agencies, service organizations, churches and private sector businesses into a united “Corps of Compassion”, to bring their combined resources together to meet the needs of the military community on a personal and individual/family level.

Our brave men and women in uniform understand duty, honor, and sacrifice. Many have returned home with both the visible scars, and the unseen wounds of war.

To give back to those who have given of themselves so selflessly

  • PTSD Foundation of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring to our combat veterans and their families with post traumatic stress. Many warriors are coming home with visible wounds; countless others are coming home with scars we cannot see, wounded souls from witnessing the horrors of war over and over again – PTSD. We feel it is our duty as Americans to help these mighty warriors and their families adjust and find their new normal.
  • It is our turn to step up with other excellent existing community organizations and help those that have fought and sacrificed so much for us. We are faith-based in our approach and have a great history of providing hope and healing to those experiencing the unseen wounds of war. We offer a safe place where no one is judged, everyone is supported, and everything a warrior says or is revealed is confidential within the group.
  • We would like the opportunity to train and/or help form groups within your community for warriors & their families to reach out to. Our teams consist of Veterans, Active and Reserve Service Members as well as civilians that have a heart for the military and their families. We have active, reserve and/or veterans from every war up to World War II that are coming to our groups. Warriors that we have worked with have learned how to heal and cope with PTSD to find their “new normal” and are now are reaching out to other warriors to let them know that there is hope in the darkness and they are NOT alone.

Please give us the opportunity to show you what we can do to provide hope for the warriors in darkness and the families who love and support them.

To increase public awareness of Post Traumatic Stress

  • Establishing relationships within the faith based community and secular organizations to facilitate support systems for our military community;
  • Locating and identifying churches currently ministering to, or are willing to consider beginning ministries to our military community
  • Workshops and counseling manuals are provided for both the warrior and their families.
  • By assisting the spouses, children and other family members, we aid in the healing process of the individual with PTSD. Too often other treatment options fail to appropriately address the impact of PTSD on the family;
  • Training is available through regional workshops or through video.
  • Training should be undertaken by pastors, staff, counselors and lay-members who might interact in any counseling program;
  • Keeping the issue before the media and general public through regular press releases and email newsletters, as well as PSA’s, websites and Facebook

Spiritual Fitness

Featured Image for Spiritual Fitness


The U.S. Army’s Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program lists five domains in which each soldier needs to be established: PHYSICAL – EMOTIONAL – SOCIAL – FAMILY – SPIRITUAL.

It is particularly important to the Christian Soldier to strengthen his or her Spiritual Fitness and that of their family. Spiritual fitness helps ensure positive growth after exposure to the stress and trauma of combat.

You are a Soldier defending your country. As part of this duty, you will encounter many challenges on the home front and on the battle front. The Spiritual Fitness handbook offers key tools to develop strength and find hope for your battles. Read through the handbook from start to finish, or use as needed to remind you of God’s love and promises given especially for you.



This refers to the aspects of our lives which interact with God, His kingdom and the kingdom of Satan. The effects of these interactions will govern our relationships, priorities, perspectives, goals, attitudes, actions and responses to adversity and trauma.

Spiritual Fitness

This refers to qualities build into us through our relationship with God which enable us to strongly resist harmful influences or assaults (physical, mental or spiritual) and to recover quickly when our defenses are breeched, eventually taking us to a state that is stronger than we had known prior to our wounding. This gives us the ability to do things like:

♦ Bounce back after the tragic death of a close friend.
♦  Gain meaning and strength, even from tragedy.
♦ Convert pain and stress into purpose and productivity in service to others.
♦ Rise above and triumph over adversity we encounter.


This describes the conviction that an eternal, loving, all-powerful, trustworthy Creator-God exists, and that He desires to interact with us, care for us, guide us, and transform us to be like Him. We hold these convictions even when they cannot be verified by our five senses. Faith enhances spiritual fitness, prompting us to love, obey and worship God out of a sense of gratitude and to love other people as we love ourselves.

Christian Faith

This is the conviction that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Christians believe that His willing sacrificial death on the cross paid the penalty for sin and made it possible for us to experience an eternal relationship with God through faith in Him. Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead verified His claims. True Christianity isn’t “pie-in-the-sky-by-and-by” or mere philosophy, but a vital day-by-day, moment-by-moment interactive friendship with God which enhances spiritual fitness.
