Operation Family: Family & Friends of American PTSD Veterans

In order to establish service connection for PTSD, the evidence must establish that during active duty a veteran was subjected to a stressor or stressors that would cause characteristic symptoms in almost anyone. Evidence of combat or having been a prisoner of war may be accepted as conclusive evidence of a stressor incurred during active duty. Evidence of combat includes receipt of the Purple Heart, the CIB, or other similar citation. The medical evidence must establish a clear diagnosis of PTSD and must link the current symptoms to the claimed stressor.

Goals...

  • Improved health care for veterans in both in-patient and out patient settings for PTSD and chemical dependency.
  • Increase the number of locations and the time for in-patient care.
  • Ease entrance into psychiatric wards for veterans in crises.
  • Make treatment available in all areas for individual family members and treatment for the family as a whole.
  • Humanize the application process for approving PTSD claims. Veterans already traumatized by war are further injured by the application and claims process.
  • Meet in DC this Veterans Day and have our voices heard in both Houses of Congress, the White House, the DVA and on the Mall...
