    Wow, that PSA is powerful! Thank you for your service to our country, and thank you for sharing your personal story with the world. I know it will help a lot of other veterans. And another big thank you for your continuing service through the VFW. I work at a VA hospital, and see all the good that these veterans' organizations do.

    Congratulations on the upcoming wedding. So glad you like your future daughter-in-law. Can't wait to see pics of the quilt!

    I too watched your PSA. Thanks for sharing your story. My son suffers from PTSD and as a result, he has cut himself off from a lot of people, including family. I hope some day he will realize that he still has value as a person just because he is, and not because of what he has done. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I’m sorry. I’m not tech savvy. Not sure how to help. But thanks for trying to watch

    I isolated too. I pray he can get a chance to see my PSA and realize it’s ok not to be ok. Tell him Ole Sarge said to get his butt to a professional and get the help he earned. He earned the right to be happy. He earned the right to enjoy people around him and he earned the right to feel the love of his family.

    I’m sending you a PM with my number

    Sending prayers hugs and love to your whole family

    Thank you for your service - then and now. I have shared your video as well. I am so glad to know that you were able to deal with your PTSD; that is awesome. Congratulations on your son's up coming wedding. I also am looking forward to that finished quilt.
