To Whom it concerns:
Last issue of popasmoke you ran a story about keeping the faith and Ron Zaczek and his struggle with PTSD.
It might be of interest to other vets to learn about an origination called Point Man International.
Years ago, when I left Nam, I had the feeling of leaving a "job" unfinished. this feeling has bothered me for years, from 1966 until 2006. Then I was introduced to Point Man.
We started an outpost in Hermiston Ore in May of 2006.
This is a program ran by veterans, for veterans whom have problems with PTSD. In WW1 it was called shell shock. In WW2 it was called combat fatigue. In the Korean War it was called solders heart. In the Viet Nam war it was called PTSD. And in the present war they are calling it PTSD.
We try to show them, the Vets that there is hope and salvation from this feeling.
If anyone would like to know more about the Point Man International Ministry and the programs we provide, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I served with the corps from 1962 untill1966 and with HMM162 and HMM361 from 1964 through 1966 in Nam.
In His Service,
