It’s Scary To Find Out How Many Military People Suffer From Mental Illness

Most Americans who never served in the military have no idea what goes on day-to-day once you are enlisted. While we are forever grateful to the men and women who protect our country around the clock, many folks in the special forces suffer terrible mental illness because they were just not prepared to handle their new responsibilities, no matter how well they have been trained. Others became deeply depressed because of sexual attacks and verbal abuses.

I started representing The Warrior Connection, McKinney, TX, for public relations, a few months ago. I have been flabbergasted by some of the stories I have heard from former soldiers. Many admitted to me they were contemplating or attempted suicide.

I listened to their stories in horror. We feel sorry for ourselves when we have to sit at our desks and work, or don’t like the TV program selections on TV. We have no idea of the torment that military men and women go through. Most of them will not discuss the details when they get home.

I happened to hear the torment because I was required to interview dozens of them and find out how The Warrior Correction cured their woes.  Some of the stories I heard were unbearable to listen to.

I want to share them with you and then explain how The Warrior Connection brought many of them back to a normal existence.

Please let me know if you want to discuss.

The Warrior Connection (TWC) understands the inner journey that continues when the war is brought home. We understand the journey of military sexual trauma survivors. We understand this journey because we are veterans. We are military spouses. We are advocates for the veteran community. We are a connection of warriors working together to improve the overall well-being of our brothers and sisters that have served.

We serve Veterans of all eras from all 50 states at no cost, thanks to our donors, sponsors, and volunteers. The TWC mission continues until we get to ZERO Veterans lost from post-traumatic stress (PTS).
