PTSD not only affects the veteran, but the entire family as well. All those who are related or close to a returned vet need to read a short book called “Tears of a Warrior” by Tony and Janet Seahorn.
I’ve been surviving with PTSD that was brought on suddenly 10 years after I returned from Vietnam.
I believe all combat soldiers are susceptible to PTSD at any given time in their life. This book explains what is going on with the vet, signs to look for and what to do about it.
