Army Mom on Post Traumatic Stress and Suicide

Valerie Pallotta is an Army mom, whose son Josh deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. After returning home, Josh suffered with Post Traumatic Stress for several years. Unfortunately he lost that battle in 2014.

Valerie talks about that battle and what she's been doing now to help make sure other veterans have the resources they need to get through their own struggles.

Her number one piece of advice if you notice a loved one is struggling with post traumatic stress is to ask their friends to reach out to them. Often times the individual won't want to talk about their troubles with a spouse, a parent, or other family. They may be more willing to talk to a friend about it though.
