PTSD brings memories of survival

By and

Yesterday we heard from Kayla Mead, a University of Florida student that lives with the experiences of PTSD through the eyes of her father, an American Soldier. Today, we continue the series with the voice of Vietnam veteran from Gainesville, Scott Camil.  As Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Luis Giraldo  reports, perhaps a look at the history of war could redefine PTSD as a problem of the past needing a new solution.

Tomorrow Luis Giraldo will have the final part of his series on the voices of PTSD with Lieutenant Preston Lewis from the Salvation Army of Gainesville, which provides services for veterans to help them adjust to life after war and who may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
