PTSD: A Nationwide Epidemic for Military Veterans?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is real, extremely debilitating, and is striking veterans at epidemic proportions, with some statistics reporting as many as 1 in 5 veterans being affected.

PTSD is not a diagnosis confined to those with a military service background, as Dr. White points out on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show. Sexual Assault, a car accident, a house-fire, or any other event which produces extreme stress can qualify you for this insidious malady. For this article and video, however, we focus the discussion on military veterans who suffer with PTSD, and specifically how veterans are being neglected by our government.

Dr. James White, Jr. has a heart for veterans. He served for 11 years in the US Army, during which he received an incredible 4 honorable discharges. Doc White left his distinguished military career to pursue health care, and, just like in the military, has enjoyed tremendous success.

Doc White has treated PTSD for many years, and can truly be considered an expert on the matter – especially PTSD within the military. I have included a bio for Dr. White below:

Here's the kicker....if you go in for treatment, the gov't now has a record and an easy way to deny you a gun permit...wonder why they're pushing the vets to go get treated....
