This was first posted on October 25, 2010.  Updated on 7-16-2012  Almost every day I see a veteran who is experiencing PTSD as a result of fighting for Our Country.  We as a Nation owe them our gratitude and support.  I wish I could do more.

It is a National disgrace.  Our walking wounded returning from the fields of battle in Iraq and Afghanistan suffering from PTSD, for which they receive "treatment" that may be "standard practice;" but it is not evidence-based. It is actually deadly for some.

DoD cracks down on off-label drug use

A letter landed in Stan White’s mailbox in Cross Lanes, W.Va., in April.
It began: “On behalf of the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces … I extend my sincerest and deepest sympathy for the loss of your sons.”
But the note wasn’t simply a condolence. The message from Air Force Lt. Gen. Brooks Bash informed White that U.S. Central Command had decided in March to remove the powerful antipsychotic drug Seroquel from its approved formulary list.
Under the new rules, CENTCOM doctors now must request a waiver if they write a prescription for Seroquel, also known as quetiapine.
The change is a small victory for White, who had already lost one son to combat and has sought restrictions on the drug he believes contributed to the death of a younger son.
Marine Cpl. Andrew White died Feb. 12, 2008, at age 23 from a lethal combination of medications prescribed for post-traumatic stress disorder, mainly clonazepam, quetiapine and paroxetine — the latter two known to sometimes affect the heart’s regular rhythm. read here



They fought for us; it is time the American people fight for them and their families' right to the truth, and our Veteran's rights to the kind compassionate care required to achieve victory here at home over the harms suffered abroad.  Write your state and US Senators and Representatives take a stand for our returning heroes.

Becky,

I come from a long-line of veterans. My grandfather served in the First World War, my dad was in the Army (Korean War era), my brother, a staff seargent in the Air Force, two cousins in the National Guard, another in the Coast Guard, a brother-in-law, a Gunnery Seargent in the U.S. Marine Corps (3x purple hear recipient, tour of duty, Vietnam), a neice who was an Army Nurse.

As a daughter of one from what it rightly called the "Greatest Generation" I thought you might enjoy this video -

Your dad must be very proud of you Becky, for your defending the Constitution of the United States against (what can only be described as) its "domestic enemies."

My best,

Duane Sherry, M.S.

Duane,

We buried my Dad in 2004. I miss him still...

I remember when I knew he was the the strongest man in the world. Now, more than 4 decades later, I know it all over again.

Isaac's orthodontist knew my Dad; and the last time we talked, he told me I sounded like him. It was the nicest thing anyone has said about me, ever.

Becky,

He's smilin' down on you now.
He's some kinda' proud of all you've done for your son, and so many countless others!
