HI. I’m alive. :D
In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’s advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
Your sacrifice and those your loved ones and family are not forgotten. To all our veterans out there, and those not here, thank you.
While I disagree with US Military actions, this is why I wish nothing but the best for our veterans.
PTSD is a lot to take in.
My great grandfather never really made it back home from the war in just the way that Sargent Chambers describes. I’m from a military family as far back as it goes, directly related to someone who’s served in each branch of the military. I married an army brat and his mom’s still in. My friends have made it home. Our culture somehow manages to believe this is all happening somewhere else, and that it’s not our story. Our mental health programs aren’t working. Our safety net is nonexistent. These soldiers deserve better, regardless of whether we approve of military action or not. Do more than telling a veteran that they’re not forgotten. Don’t forget them.

watching my son play with a water bottle and mentally freaking out at the fact that if there was one of those damn drano bombs in our yard he’d pick it up in a second just to play with it. That’s fucking terrifying.
