CNNI was fortunate to have Brooke Baldwin and CNN contact me about the Open Letter to Sarah Palin I wrote.  Click here for the Interview. While it was a short interview I was able to convey some thoughts regarding PTSD and domestic violence.  Let me quickly clarify.  If you have never done a media event, you don’t really have control over the content.  The “PTSD Survivor” and “combat survivor” is not titles I would have chosen.  While PTSD can be caused by a number of different ‘stressors’, many of the men and women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan have seen very, very serious combat compared to me.  I was really on the fence about disclosing my diagnosis but figured if it elevated the discussion it was worth the sacrifice. Lastly, I was a bit frustrated that I could not take the opportunity to give a plug for some great organizations.  Given my own background, please consider donating to The Marine Reconnaissance Foundation; Recon & Sniper Foundation; or The Raider Project.
