“A Soldier Fights Off the Cold”


A soldier’s story, in the New York Times, speaks for more than people in the military: “I feel an obligation to tell my story, because so many others are suffering through the darkness and pain. Americans must know that the scars from PTSD are very real and in many ways, more painful than the ones caused by bullets or shrapnel. I know, I have both. No one should underestimate the power of PTSD — it has no soul and fights only for yours. You cannot defend yourself alone, but victory is possible. It is strong, so you must be stronger.”
