Living in military city, the city is decorated with so many service men and women that served our country! Being grateful and thankful to our service men and women is a small way to show we care.
Veterans day was previously called Armistice day to celebrate to cessation of world war I that took place on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. It wasn't until 1938 that President Eisenhower official changed it to Veterans day.
Our veterans have fought and served our country. With the accolade and honor, a substantial moment may have existed where they may have experienced some sort of trauma affecting their day to day behaviors or thought process.
We have all heard the term PTSD. Instead of explaining it to you, I wanted to share with you about how common ptsd is in veterans. This my small gratitude of information that I can share to help celebrate our men and women whom have served our country.
Have a mentally healthy Veteran's day!
