My name is Josh Walker, and I am a combat veteran of the United States Army with the 101st Airborne Division. I deployed to southwest Baghdad during 2005-2006 with 1st Platoon, Alpha Troop, 1/75th Cavalry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division.
This is the story of a veteran soldier dealing with PTSD, life, reintegration, society, and more. It is raw, unedited, and honest. I am only now, after six years, coming to grips with the fact that I’m not “normal” anymore.
As you read some of my posts, you’ll see that my symptoms, habits, and thoughts are a result of combat and the military. This blog, in addition to the VA (and very soon a service dog!), is meant to be therapeutic and relieving. Some of the content of this blog will also form the content of a more detailed book.
If you are a soldier that is dealing with issues, check back soon as I am compiling a resources page where you will be able to find more help with different organizations throughout the country.
