Military Network Radio with Linda Kreter and Co-host Jason McNamara present:
Expectations Shattered: Returning After War Trauma –
|Michael Orban is an accomplished writer and speaker, continuing to serve long after serving in Vietnam beginning at age 20. He shares his experiences with combat PTSD and returning to “home” after combat. Each soldier, marine, airman, and sailor is unique, but the return after combat has not substantially changed for 50 years. Co-host Jason McNamara shares and confirms a similar experience with his service in Iraq and both men speak candidly about the parallels and the individual personal challenges within military culture.
Michael’s books, “Souled Out” (http://amzn.to/2gExnJS) and “Conquering Combat PTSD” (http://amzn.to/2gWO53h) share his experience and perceptions as a returning veteran, struggles with relationships, alcohol, and numbing isolation. These led to introspection and seeking answers for his painful questions, and eventual acceptance of war experiences, including forgiveness and reconnecting with love, joy, and happiness. Military and veteran families of every era will know this condition of PTS/PTSD, and we can learn from Michael’s revelations while contrasting them with our own.
