Happy to be Home! DoDLive Blogger Roundtable

"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. 


Friends, co-workers, other military personnel should be listening too:  Another soldier identified the Real Warrior Campaign (RWC) as helpful and that opened the door for Tippett. He said the RWC broke the stigma associated with those needing help which allowed him to respond and opened the door for others who heard his story as well.  Friends helping friends is often the best way to reach out to someone in need of professional assistance.

If you would like to hear more of Tippett's story the RWC has a series of profile videos on their site which is very informative and not long.  It also features the stories of other service members such as Sgt Maj of the Army Raymond Chandler and Cmdr. (Chaplain) Steve Dundas.  Tippett sought out counseling from RESPECT-Mil (Re-Engineering Systems of Primary Care Treatment) at Ft Campbell and found it to be more effective than a previous post's efforts at counseling soldiers before and after deployment.

The Roundtable also heard from Nancy St. Claire, Chief Operating Officer from the RWC campaign partner Give an Hour which provides free civilian mental health services for military members and their families.  Nancy said the founder of Give an Hour, Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, wanted to rally the mental health community to support of the military community.  They now have 7,000 clinicians in all 50 states and since 2005 have donated 110,000 hours to the community.  Available counselors include psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, marriage and family therapists, drug and alcohol counselors,  pastoral counselors, and other professional counselors. They have a search tool on their site and telephonic services are available.  Services are totally private and skype type capabilities are in the pilot stage!

It is almost the end of PTSD Awareness Month but that should not end our quest to be aware, look out for, seek help and be aware of the symptoms of PTSD and resources available for our service members and their families. If you would like to see more about the DoDLive Blogger Roundtable you can find the audio of this Roundtable at DoDLive.

  5. The academic world has found a useful buddy in plagiarism checkers, especially the people who have work submitted to them and which they have to evaluate. For instance, teachers to whom a student is submitting an assignment use them to conduct a plagiarism check to determine the originality. Similarly, they are a curse for people who would like blatantly copy someone else's content and pass it off as their own. One man's blessing is another's curse.
    • Plagiarism checkers, if they are any good, have access to vast online databases of their own. In these databases, millions of web pages are stored. Whenever one uses the checker, the content in question is searched on these databases against those millions of web pages. They also have access to external databases where vast volumes of previous academic researchers and materials are stored which may not be available on the internet. You can also use wordcounter tool for characters count.
