Author Harnden: PTSD Is Soldiers' 'Invisible Wound'

By    |   Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 12:20 PM

Some of the most common struggles of veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are hypervigilance, nightmares, anger, and an inability to reintegrate with their families, war correspondent Toby Harnden said Tuesday on "America’s Forum" on Newsmax TV.

Harnden is the author of "Dead Men Risen: An Epic Story of War and Heroism in Afghanistan."

"The good news is it is treatable with the right treatments and the right care," according to Harnden. "The way I look at it is it's an invisible wound. You can tell if somebody has got a leg missing. What you can't tell is a veteran who is walking down the street and hears a car backfiring or hears a door slamming and it's easily transported back to the streets of southern Afghanistan."
