June is PTSD month but veterans with PTSD live with this debilitating mental illness each and every day. There are many organizations that assist veterans with their PTSD challenges, including VA services and programs as well as private organizations such as GLVFA.
Of particular interest to our members, and a presentation topic given at the recent June membership meeting, GLVFA is involved with supporting the local veteran community by contributing to the Veterans SAVES program, an initiative that helps local veterans learn to reduce their PTSD stressors through learning the sport of golf. A recent Hernando Sun news article details how GLVFA has engaged in this worthy program.
