My name is Nathan Speck. I am 31 years old. I am a Drill Sergeant in the U.S. Army currently. I have done 2 deployments to Iraq. 15 months to Baghdad for the “Surge”, and a 10 month tour in 2009-2010. I was hit by an IED Memorial Day 2007. I received 10 stitches to my forehead, concussion and TBI. My injuries were minor compared to many, but my scars are mental. I have a wonderful wife Heather and 2 children. They have supported me from the begining. Instead of leaving my wife has researched PTSD and tries to help me though the dark times. Now I feel it is my time to help others.This blog is to help educate people on what it is like to live a life with Combat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Just because you leave the war zone does not mean it ever leaves you. Feel free to comment on my posts. I am considering trying to start a support group and any help would be greatly appreciated.
