Healing on the Homefront

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are the signature wounds of the Global War on Terrorism.  And although the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration have increased their efforts to meet the needs of services members coming back with TBI  and PTSD, it is important for  military members, who have suffered these injuries, have the support of family, neighbors, employers, community, and our state as they heal on the home front.

In this 60 minute feature you will first meet three veterans from New York state as they and their families talk about the signs and symptoms of TBI and PTSD.  In the second part of the feature Retired Adjunct General Roger Lempke moderates a discussion with Trevor Stryker, a Nebraska Marine, and three professionals who provide support to service men and women in Nebraska. As Trevor will testify, with the su pport of those around him, there is hope and healing on the home front.
