"In 2014 a dear friend of mine lost his battle with PTSD at the young age of 31. We fought side-by-side in Iraq, and he is all I have been thinking about. For those who don't know, PTSD is a mental health condition triggered by a terrifying event—either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. People living with PTSD are haunted by traumatic events from their past on a daily basis. So I ask, if you know someone who has been deployed, or even just served stateside, don't wait for them to open up to you. Make an effort to ask how they are doing or spend a little time with them. It may not sound like much, but I can assure you they will appreciate it."
