PTSD and our Allies
PTSD is not limited to just US troops or even just Americans. London Real TV has a new episode up of UK Territorial Army soldier Jake Wood as he describes his distinct and brutally taxing tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, how he is haunted by his part in the killing of a Taliban, his suicidal tendencies that ultimately led him to seek treatment for PTSD, why he released his “helmet-cam” footage to dispute one of his critics, and how after his military service he just cherishes the simple things in life. I want to share the video with you.
