Large portions of our military members and veterans are suffering from Military Sexual Trauma (MST), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) yet their right to heal is violated on a mass scale. Traumatized service members have been forced to deploy against the best interest of their health and well being throughout the Global War on Terror. Now with the return of troops from Iraq, the military is trying to skirt it’s responsibilities to care for service members. Military leaders and service providers are giving inadequate care, pushing improper diagnoses, and forcing thousands of service members to leave the military with no care or benefits by pursuing punitive discharges for troops who really need medical and mental health care. Members of IVAW will share about these realities and what is needed today.Filed under:
