Please, if you know a Veteran or the spouse of a Veteran the local D.A.V. can help them.
Please make a note of this link for future reference.
This link points to one in Florida, where a lot retired Yankees live! http://www.davmembersportal.org/chap...6/defa...
The D.A.V. asked all members to raise awareness during the month of June 2012 about PTSD. Perhaps that might clarify why I have so "Obsessed" this month about PTSD.
Here is what they want you to know and also what they asked the members like me to make available to any place where lots of people are.
You can find this on their home page. Thank all of you that have helped raise awareness this month, no matter how you may be part of that.
