my last soldiers poem of the month ends today

Veterans Posttraumatic Stress Disorder


Veterans posttraumatic stress disorder

Many vets have (ptsd)posttraumatic stress disorder
Living their lives on the border.
They served their nation, they served it well
But now their minds are shot to hell.
They leave the v.a. hospital and head to the railroad tracks
With suicide intentions there’s no turning back.
Why are they trying to get help when it’s too late?
Give classes to the military ahead of time
So they don’t go into a situation completely blind.
Prepare the soldiers for what lies ahead
Don’t wait until they are dying or laying dead.
The more knowledge the better the chance
So ptsd don’t advance.
War takes a toll on everyone – it is not a game
It is not fun.
Help should be given both on and off the field
So with life they can deal.
