Vietnam veterans wounded forgotten warriors

Wounded Forgotten Warrior Project

Combat PTSD Wounded Times

I wanted to show what it is like driving into work at 5:00 am with very little traffic on the road. Much like when I got into working on PTSD back in 1982, the road was paved by others out there long before I even heard the term.

Vietnam veterans are responsible for everything we know about what trauma does. It is not that others never experienced it, but they were the ones who did something about it.

During the filming of the video, the commercial for Wounded Warrior Project came on and I lost my mind. It came on right after I ran down the things that have been forgotten, including the fabulous work done on the Forgotten Warrior Project. It told their stories to stop them from suffering in silence.

They are the wounded forgotten warriors! Their project was to heal their generations and all others who came before them and for those they knew would come after them.

In the video you will hear about IFOC, Nam Knights and Point Man International Ministries

I trained with the IFOC. I am a Lady of the Knight with the Nam Knights. I am Florida state coordinator of Point Man. So yes, I believe in them and what we do!

Please look them up if you want to know about about fabulous efforts to do real peer support.

Yesterday at Gator Harley Davidson in Leesburg Florida, the Green Swamp chapter of the Nam Knights had a unique fund raiser. They had groups race with costumes pushing beds. Yes, beds.

Members of some businesses, police officers, firefighters, Marines and one of them did pushups on the bed, Soldiers and even SWAT. Naturally SWAT had to top everyone with blowing something up!
And SWAT won!
