Since 2001, according to the US Congressional Research Service, the United States Military has diagnosed 131,341 soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and there is many more cases that are undiagnosed. PTSD affects over 2.2% of the population, which is an estimated 7.7 million people. When the US military members come home from war, it is very hard to adjust. Most people only see the physical scars of war, and not necessarily see the mental and emotional hardships their duties overseas placed on them. This is a very personal cause for me, as my boyfriend was diagnosed with PTSD after he returned from Afghanistan in 2010. I am determined to make sure solider's with PTSD know that the USA is backing them 100%.
