There are many victims of the failure to effectively recognize and deal with Combat Trauma and sadly some are the very loved ones we would give our lives to protect.

That’s why it’s so important to recognize the symptoms and get the recovery process started for you and your family as soon as possible.  The failure to effectively do this can start a domino effect, a cascade of follow-on problems whose impact can unknowingly be passed on to others in your family and their families over time.  I can’t think of a more powerful tool to demonstrate the importance of this issue than the music of today.

Here’s a music video called “I Wish” which is a moving lament by a young man expressing the human feelings he’s observed in others wishing things could have been different in their lives.

Ironically, it was produced and directed by the grandson of a WW II veteran who took his unresolved PTSD driven anger and grief out on his family, mainly his father.  Fortunately his father, a fellow Marine and my personal mentor, adviser and coach made the commitment to never put his family through the continuing chain of trauma failing to effectively deal with Combat Trauma can cause.  Instead his father has focused his efforts to help my mission of helping others to get help and also breaking the chain.

Believe me you have the chance to break this chain now before it has the chance to grow.  Here’s why you need to do something about it…
