Help Him Through the Valley of the Shadow of PTSD
Eventually, someone is going to desperately need your old buddy’s help to walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of PTSD. And he can’t help until he is where you are now.
Been Through the Valley of the Shadow of PTSD

Troops Exposed to Nerve Agents – the Basics
Between 1955 and 1975, almost seven thousand Army soldiers volunteered to help test a new weapon: nerve gas. These 6,720 soldiers were exposed to anticholinesterase, specifically tuban, Sarin, Soman, cyclosarin, and VX. Reports assured the Army that there had been no significant long term effects.
The New VA dot GOV
Overall, I like the new US Department of Veterans Affairs website. The appearance is clean, young, vital, and energetic without being overwhelmingly bureaucratic or formidable.
Afghans for Homeless Women Veterans
The nine members of the McLeod Prayer Shawl Ministry saw another opportunity to help when they heard last June that twelve thousand veteran women are homeless.
Corregidor – The facts behind the movie
This cheesy movie, often interspersed with dull political-type speeches about honor and glory and democracy and good versus evil was a shameful reflection of the truth of the Battle of Corregidor. Learn more about the facts.
