Many people think PTSD is the root of all mental health problems among veterans. This oversimplification is often reinforced by behaviors considered abnormal. One veteran I spoke with claimed to have stopped a dangerous driver, thrown him out of the car, and “gave him a life lesson.” Most people would accuse the veteran of needing anger management […]
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
This movie shows some of the experiences we bring home from the war. These experiences are part of what can bring us to the point of suicide and homicide. The things we are exposed to, and what we have to do at war, de-sensitizes us. Once we take a life in the heat of battle, it becomes easier to take another life or one’s own life. Some warriors feel like there is no forgiveness for all the things they have done in battle or under orders. I’d like for civilians to see this movie to understand the chain of events that can cause a service member to do some of the things we end up doing after we get back.
This organization “Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society” main purpose is to be there for sailors and marines in time of need. A lot of time this is while waiting for the VA to process the veteran’s benefits. As we all know the VA benefits process takes way too long. This organization work very good and fast, I know because I got to use them three years ago. The assisted me with money to pay my bills and I didn’t have to pay the money back. That was exactly what I needed at the time.

I like to share with OIF/OEF and Afghanistan Ohio resident veterans that you may qualify for Free money (bonus) from Ohio Department of Veterans Services. Whether you are a veteran in need or no if you qualify you can get financial help. I didn’t know about this until I was fired and couldn’t find a job. At that time, it felt good that someone was going to help me. It gets ugly when you are down and out and it seems as if no one cares about you. There is an application you most complete, have it notarized and return with a copy of your DD214. It is a only onetime benefit. I applied for it and received $500.00 for my service. I encourage all OIF/OEF and Afghanistan veterans to apply. Let them tell you that you don’t qualify that way you don’t have wonder if you do qualify.
