Shawn, I am so glad you wrote this column! I dealt with a veteran this past week that had full blown PTSD. The person didn't want to talk to anyone else but other veterans that had seen live combat because no one else would truly understand what they lived through. It was weird for me to be in church the next morning. After that experience, I felt I was standing between two worlds: one with young kids who wanted stuff and hang with their friends and the other where one just wanted peace of mind.
