The US military provides the finest training and has the most sophisticated weapon training in the world. All airmen, marines, soldiers, and sailors know that personal sacrifice is inherent in the job of service to their country. Sometimes the sacrifice is exposure to trauma that impacts emotional and/or physical health. Sometimes the sacrifice is life itself. Spouses and families of military personnel also make huge sacrifices and suffer "collateral damage" when their loved one are suffering from the effects of trauma. Know the signs, get the help.
