It is such a shock for family to observe these guys struggle with everyday American life. [One of Our Former Adoptees] is better but not the same. You know it's like the Church who builds membership. They witness to get em "saved" then they dump then at that point. I am convinced our HEROES returning home needs just as much support as those on the battlefields. They ultimatly sacrificed for freedom US. We need to help them claim the life they put on hold to serve.
Once they're home, it's not always smooth sailing ~ one battle (the one with guns & bullets & such) is over for them for the moment -- but another one, just as intense, is just beginning. If you know someone who has been over there and just gotten back - say an extra few dozen prayers for them, ESPECIALLY if they were in combat situations. Do whatever you can to show them you still continue to support them.
"SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS" doesn't mean only supporting them during deployment ~ it absolutely means continuing that support and encouragement once they are home.
PS - You can read about PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) HERE. Actually, there are tons f places you can read about it ~ just google "PTSD" and you'll get tons of results.
