Thankful Thursday onnaccounta 501c3’s

This is a pic I took of myself and Mina today at the Brain Treatment Center 

I am about halfway through a treatment regimen that has significantly improved my life.  It is an amazing procedure that I think more people need to know about.  I am not going to waste your time trying to explain exactly how it works because I can’t give it justice with my limited vocabulary.  What I can say is that I am off all meds.  All meds.  Even the self-prescribed ones.  I sleep 8+ hours a night and my associated ptsd symptoms are so diminished that I can barely remember what it was like to be angry and agitated and hyper-vigilant all of the time.

There are many people responsible for the science behind this treatment.  I am grateful for their hard work and dedication.  This treatment has helped many of my former crew-members as well as children with debilitating autism. It has also helped other adults who have suffered from various mental health issues.  It is an amazing process and I look forward to the day when it is available to everyone.

I really want to thank two organizations.  These two organizations have been instrumental in getting me and more than a few others from my crew, into this life-changing process.  All Eagles Oscar is a relatively new organization that was started by a friend, Brandon, who was a member of the Ranger Regiment in the US Army and was also a member of the SOCOM Care Coalition. He helped me and hundreds of other veterans transition from active duty military to the civilian world.  He and his organization, working closely with the “Tip of the Spear Foundation” has raised the significantly large sums of capitol it takes to pay for combat veterans like myself to get this treatment.

The Tip of the Spear Foundation and All Eagles Oscar provide the funding and logistic support for special operations combat veterans to get the absolute best mental health treatment available.  In addition to taking care of me, they are also assisting with the same treatment for my spouse.  This is an amazingly generous gift.  Our families endure difficult times on the rough ride through our combat deployments and the tough transition between military and civilian life.  I am exceptionally grateful for the assistance we have received and I encourage any of you who may read this to click on the associated links and make a donation to further this cause.  I know that All Eagles Oscar and Tip of the Spear Foundations have a long list of waiting veterans and family members, who need and deserve the best treatment available.
