Veterans Bleeding on the Inside

Over at the ePluribus Media Community site, star contributor ilona has written a series of important pieces on war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The first, "16,000+ Returning Combat Vets Need Our Help," gives us an eye-opening look at statistics that reveal the mental health toll of our Global War on Terror.

"Take That, PTSD! Rep. Lane Evans Rocks" documents the brave efforts of Illinois Congressman Lane Evans to help vets affected by PTSD.

In "Doonesbury this Week: One Vet's PTSD Struggle," ilona covers Pulitzer Prize winner Garry Trudeau's laudable efforts at supporting and explaining one soldier's recovery from this occupational disease of war.

You may also want to look at the PTSD section in the ePluribus Timelines feature. The linked stories posted there are utterly heartbreaking.

    Thanks, Jeff, for spotlighting this issue and my work with ePM. The extra effort to shine a little bit of light on this matter is so very appreciated and needed.

    THANK you!

  2. You're most welcome. Has anyone approached you yet about working these pieces into a Journal article?
