Hi Proud Marine Mom,


   Just stopping ny to say hi and let you know your son and your family are in my prayers.  I hope he is getting the help he deserves.  We cannot ever thank our young people enough for the many sacrifices they make.  I don't know how this might sound to you but if it is OK, please give your Marine a big hug from this Grandma.  God Bless and Semper Fi

Hi Proud Marine Mom,


  Get in touch with your local VA.  They have trained people who will defenitly be of help to your son.  My husband has PTSD as a result of his service during the Vietnam war and the VA helped him learn how to deal with it and return to his old normal self.  All of the people here have good suggestions, hang in there and, please know we are all keeping your son and your family in our prayers.  Thank him for his service from me, the proud wife of a Vietnam Veteran and the proud Grandma of a soon to be Marine.  God Bless.  Semper Fi!
