Wounded Warrior Project
November 15, 2013

After he came home from Iraq, our son started to have these rage episodes about every three months. A year ago - December 2012, he attempted suicide. He said he was unable to live with the memories of the things he saw and/or experienced in Iraq. Through a friend, we were provided with the name of the alumni care coordinator for the Wounded Warrior Project. Within 5 minutes, that gentleman had provided us with all of our next steps, getting our boy to the VA, outlining everything we needed to say and do to ensure that our son got the help he needed.
Since then, our boy, his wife, his father and I have been provided with opportunities to retreats or activities that have provided all of us with education to help us all understand PTSD and caregivers' fatigue.
Thanks to the WWP, the cycle was broken.
