This is a version of presenation that I give for free around the state of Oregon. My intent is to change the way the military and veterans talk about combat stress injurie and PTSD, to make it more of an open topic. Currently we hear the term and we 'tune out' and don't seek the help so many of us need. Understanding what is happening in the brain and soul, with respect to our uniform and our warrior ethos, has helped many soldiers/marines begin treatment. I am always reworking this to make the message better. I try to relate to the audience and use my credentials as infantry instructor and combat vet to that effect.
