Definition - Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that's triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Many of our fighting men and women who have served our Nation with courage and honor suffer from this.  Many years ago some people may have called it "shell-shock" or the "thousand yard stare", and it was considered a taboo subject to many. 

Robert Jack Post 1322 is dedicated to helping their own, and others, who may be experiencing PTSD. 

We have a peer support group that meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 5:00 PM .  You do not have to be a member of the Post to join this group.

For more information about this group, contact our Service Officer, Shawn Wenninger, at (910) 709-9853.
