As a Marine Corps Veteran, I have seen first hand the passion and compassion of how fantastic this organization is. They have an extremely high level of success assisting our War Veterans who are diagnosed with PTSD...and they do it Free of Charge!

One diagnosed with PTSD can expect a series of treaments and working with professionals, they'll uncover the primary trigger that is the core issues troubling one with PTSD. Then with counceling, learn how to handle their spefic needs, understand what triggers their underlying issues. They can then understand, control, and anticipate situations that will allowing them to live a more complete, full, and normal life. Visit their website, there's a lot fo good information to read or share with someone who needs assistance... www.azptsd.org

Duane Knutsoon and his organization are absolutely amazing, dedicated to helping veterans in a way that I've never seen before. Duane- also called "Doc" by his friends- has a tireless commitment to the organization, and is a deeply connected member of his community. I've partnered with them to document a Golf Charity event, and it couldn't have been more fun, more meaningful, or more effective in any way. Absolutely fantastic organization-

The United States War Veterans PTSD Foundation is truly helping our service men and women by offering their support, medical advice, care and hope for what is in my opinion one of the most disabling traumas for a veteran. Post Traumatic Stress needs to be addressed by the people of the United States. This trauma is not going away and it is affecting more and more people as we learn more about this trauma disorder. Please support this foundation in it's efforts to help our military veterans. Our veterans are our brothers, sisters, father's, mother's, aunt, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends, the people that matter most in our lives. - Grace Alvarez, Chandler, AZ

Working with this organization has been the most difficult but rewarding thing I have ever done. It's difficult to see all these veterans suffering after serving our country in combat. It's rewarding to help them through recovery and watch them finally adjust to civilian life after witnessing the horrors of war.

Working this past year as a fundraiser for US War Veterans PTSD Foundation I have found them to be a professional, pioneering and compassionate.
They are involved in PTSD treatments and healing via Brain State Technology that transforms the lives of veterans and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I am an alumni of Brain States Technologies treatment and credit them with my personal healing from PTSD. When I met Duane and David of US War Veterans PTSD Foundation, I felt the enormous potential for healing and service in their work. It is a privilege to work together.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They are maturing and advancing into a top level non-profit

Provides a much needed resource for the veterans returning from the war.
With war time veterans suffering from PTSD the suicide rate is running at an all time high. The VA, even with best of intentions, are unable to handle the number of veterans requiring immediate attention that their mental condition requires. The US War Veterans PTSD Foundation offers an alternative to the convention methods of therapies offered by the VA which for the most part have proven to be ineffective.
This new therapy needs to adopted in all miltary medical centers and VA hospitals. Our veterans deserve this proven method of therapy offered freely by this foundation.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

No however I have read many case studies and reports concerning combat veterans who have received this type of therapy with exceptional results

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I received help from these people last year. I got therapy and group sessions at no cost to me. They really care about veterans. I am coping better now but still not out of the woods.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping me deal with my memories of combat.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Develop more avenues for treatment.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The ease of gaining their support. They didn't allow me to feel ashamed for asking for their help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I only met the Director.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Actually do something to help combat personnel suffering with PTSD.

Ways to make it better...

the VA would offer me the kind of help I received with this organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Thousands of vets with my problems and money to treat them all.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am proud to have met these poeple and God help them with what they try to do.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
