June is PTSD Awareness Month…

Although  the vetrans of WWII considered it “taboo” to speak  anything about the war they experienced, we know today that escaping the everyday battles of #PTSD (aka shell shock, 1,000 yard stare, and so on)  was as probable as it is for post 911  vets. 

I’d like to pay tribute to those warriors of  the greatest generation our nation has seen who quietly lived with their inner battles long after the fires in Europe and the Pacific were extinguished.
