"Happy to be Home"
Normally you start a blog with the beginning and work your way to the end; today, I started with the closing comments of Master Sergeant Aaron Tippett, US Army. The Blogger Roundtable had the opportunity to interview and listen to the comments of an American hero and how he dealt with the challenges of PTSD. Listen up military spouses! He responded to his spouse after she saw the cumulative effects of multiple deployments. Stay in touch with your spouse! His advise for spouses was, "be there, listen, be supportive," but don't push it, each soldier is different. After his wife encouraged him to seek help ("you need to get help") for his symptoms, he responded to her attention and caring.
