A Special Salute to My Infantry Buddies...
(PORTLAND, OR) - Post Traumatic stress is one of the worst medical ailments of combat infantry. This is especially true for them, but also for emergency room personnel who continually play witness to severe trauma.
Most of the PTSD victims I have worked with are/were military... Army and Marines. This story is about the causes of Post Traumatic Stress and what it psychologically does to the victims, regardless of whether they are military or civilian, because civilians get PTSD too. This is about the events that cause PTSD, when you are sitting in a foxhole being shot at, or shooting at people.
I was paid one dollar a day.
