Walking with Christ through Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome

“As awesome as the war weapons are, they cannot compare to the suffering men experienced! Not only from the physical suffering, but both psychological and spiritual. Even as I write these reflections, current reports tell of an increasing rate of suicide, not only among troops in active combat, but among veterans. Not long ago, I had the privilege of helping two who were suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTS) to the extent of making attempts to take their own lives. Only spiritual tools made the difference then, and will in the present or the future. I pray they remember what helped them then, so that they can continue in their journey of faith.”

From the upcoming book Reflections of a Combat Chaplain by Edward F. Lundwall
