I have joined the Grassroots Team of Family of a Vet! This incredible group was started four years ago by the wife of a wounded veteran who was frustrated by the lack of practical information on TBI, PTSD, and other issues affecting military and veteran families. The website now has 100s of pages of information and the team is working to distribute information around the nation.
Since I am new to the organization, I can by no means do it justice by my description. Please check out the links below and take some time to explore all the information.
Earlier this summer I worked on the PTSD and TBI Education packet linked below. I had the opportunity participate in a mock-up of the new VA Caregiver app being developed for the iPhone and iPad. I am currently researching topics to write new articles.
The support and friendship at Family of a Vet is amazing! I feel I have a whole new circle of friends who really "get it" and understand where we are in our lives because they have been there.
Awesome handout explaining TBI and PTSD and background on FOV
