Iraq Afghan Combat Veterans return home with PTSD

US Military veterans returning home from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan often bring the war home with them due to PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder.

Post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] is an anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. In particular, when the event involved a real or imagined threat of death.

Generals are not exempt either from PTSD. It may affect anyone, regardless of the rank on your uniform.

Two US Army Generals discuss post traumatic stress on the video:

Band of Brothers.

Symptoms of PTSD post traumatic stress disorder include flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, irritability, difficulty concentrating, trouble readjusting to home and withdrawal from friends and family. 

It’s ok to get help. PTSD is common and to be expected from combat veterans who have experienced war zones.

Holland return home from World Cup to hero’s welcome

The Netherlands world cup team returned home to a hero’s welcome on a boat parade. 600,000 Oranje fans lined the canals of Amsterdam and welcomed the second-place Champions as the Winners Holland truly are.  

Clearly Holland is the best team to have never won the World Cup. Do some research on 1974 , 1978 and 2010. Unbelievably, heart breaking.

The Netherlands players first went to a private reception with the Dutch PM and Queen Beatrix in The Hague. There the coach [manager] Bert van Marwijk and team captain Giovanni van Bronckhorst were officially knighted.

Then they were helicoptered to Amsterdam where two thirds of a million Dutch people lined the canals to celebrate the Holland national team’s boat parade.

In loving memory – William Becks –  Arnhem, Holland. Thanks for your loving Oranje fans. Thanks team for your world-class play. Thanks for your support.

Hold your head high, Winners. Be Strong. Walk in Confidence.
