DEAR VIETNAM VETERAN

I know I should have written much sooner.

I can't say why I did not. Out of fear of admitting to myself you were there fighting a war. Or maybe ashamed; ashamed that I never accepted the things you felt you had to do.

Whatever it is, I know it must hurt.

Believe me when I say it hurts me more. I have the burden of your hurt plus that of my own; the pain of not being able to show my true feeling toward you.

I am not writing this for the months you served in Vietnam, but for the many years, you were left alone with only your brother Veterans. You served proudly and it went unmentioned.

For a long time, I've wanted to express the words. The words an honorable Veteran needs to hear.

For a long time, I've wanted to hold you during your times of pain.

God knows I wanted to.

And only He knows why I never found the courage. I do not remember what I used to say; maybe I do not want to remember.

All I know is I hope that it is not too late to give you those things now.

For years, you tried to be part of my world. Doing everything to please me, just to be noticed and given a little time and understanding.

I look back and see the demands I placed on your shoulders when you were young. "Fight your weakness, and always show strength to others around you."

Who was I to make such a demand?

I sit here with tears in my heart, finally admitting to myself the one weakness you must have seen in me and never questioned.

My inability to say the words that I know would have meant so much to you.

"Welcome Home."

You served your country honorably.

Please hear these words now, from my heart. Please give me a chance to be part of your world now. The world I should have been part of long ago.

Love,
America

The letter has brought warm tears to the eyes of many...  both Givers and Receivers.
(  Besides being given to family and friends, The Letter has been given to homeless Vietnam Veterans, used during PTSD therapy sessions and sadly, even been placed in caskets of Vietnam Veterans. )

Congressman Scott Garrett is running for re-election, please ask him to help a disabled veteran.
 
 
For years, the State of New Jersey, especially the Governor's Office, has not answered disabled vet, webmaster and poet, Jack Cunningham's letters.
Please call Amy Smith, Congressman Scott Garrett's (Mr. Cunningham's representative) chief of staff at 202 225-4465. 
 
Ask Amy Smith to please have Congressman Garrett write a letter (And follow-up) to New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine asking for a licit state investigation on John "Jack" Cunningham charges of New Jersey State corruption and Cover-up for Maynard & Truland of Morristown, NJ.
You can email Amy Smith at:   nj05.calendar@mail.house.gov
 
 

Research indicates early intervention after a traumatic event can reduce the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That’s why the more we know about PTSD, the more effective we can be as social workers to help people overcome and cope with this mental health condition.

June 27 is PTSD Awareness Day, which was established last year by the Senate to raise public awareness about PTSD.  Awareness first starts with understanding what something is, where it comes from and how it can be treated.

This “What is PTSD?” infographic outlines the symptoms, causes and treatments for the various types of traumatic events, and we hope this serves as a good starting point to spread awareness.

A real David vs. Goliath story.
 
Serving as a  PRO SE, Superior Court plaintiff,  a PTSD disabled veteran convinced Honorable Judge Ronald Graves that a high level Supreme Court Official and his law firm committed Legal Malpractice.   Over the objection of this high level Supreme Court official, Judge Graves determined that the disabled vet's charges and evidence "warrants the Law Division for damages."     When the disabled veteran asked the court for a transcript of Judge Graves' decision, he was notified by the court clerk that part of the court transcript was (strangely) missing and could not be reproduced."    Read some of the court filed letters by pressing here.   This missing court transcript helped this corrupt, high level Supreme Court official and his corrupt law firm to get away with Legal Malpractices charges and Attorney Ethics charges.    This state courts' COVER-UP is still going on.       PRESS  HERE  FOR  EVIDENCE 
IT'S  ALREADY  BEEN  SEVEN  YEARS  OF  BATTLE,  BUT  DAVID  IS  NOT  GIVING  UP,  UNTIL GOLIATH  AND  HIS  SUPPORTERS  COME  DOWN  TO  JUSTICE.
