War and PTSD: A Discussion Regarding the Documentary (VIDEO)Bonnie King & Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com
Viewers learn more about our upcoming documentary that will help countless thousands of U.S. combat vets.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The first time we produced a television documentary the project was for Oregon Public Broadcasting, the year was 1993, and the subject was the story of the sole survivor of the WWII B-17 bomber crash on Cape Lookout in Oregon.
Now we are engaged in the production of a documentary about a huge subject: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This is condition experienced by people who survive any range of traumatic events. Combat heads the list of reasons that people end up living with PTSD.
For people who are Web savvy, an endless amount of resources exist that deal with PTSD. Numerous individuals and groups have devised and launched programs and therapies that help combat vets regain the footing in life that they once had.
Our intention is to present every option for dealing with PTSD that we can in the scope of an hour.
Viewers will also learn the perspective of soldiers and Marines with their boots on the ground in Iraq, who specifically address PTSD and its role in their lives while they are still fighting the war.
We have a significant presence in the world as a Web media group and we are the first to launch an independently owned but still mainstream news group online. Now five years have passed, over 11,000 news articles have been published, and more than ever we need the support of people in order to accomplish this goal.
It has been a tough road for us so far, and we have successfully taken huge steps in the process. The documentary is everyone's chance to help our tired and weary veterans and their families.
In the video segments below you will hear more about why this project is important. One Oregon public TV station has expressed strong interest in the program and it has national potential; but first we have to record the rest of the footage of the various programs and interviews with veterans and doctors, etc.
