New material surfaces daily on the internet and in user discussion forums dealing with the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (“PTSD”).

This is a level of dishonesty that transcends the country at this moment. BUT, there are Americans, thankful, compassionate, and caring that feel we owe thanks, we pray for you and know that there is hope for the hero. Godspeed.
