VOW Talk Radio is back! After an extended break our team is ready to get back on the airwaves. We have a lot of exciting things coming up. Our show will be airing on Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm beginning Tuesday, February 14, 2011.
Listen in and find out about our new partnerships, meet our VOW Talk Radio team members, and find out about guests and topics that will be featured in the coming weeks.
Our topic for the show, PTSD Awareness, is an important one. Even if you don’t have PTSD yourself, and it isn’t affecting your family personally, you still need to understand it. With so many combat veterans returning to our communities, we are all affected whether we realize it or not. We all know someone who served. Veterans are in our neighborhoods, our grocery stores, our churches, our schools, our work places, our parks, and more.
PTSD is not something bad and scary. The media is painting a negative picture about our veterans causing them to be viewed in a way that is just plain wrong. We don’t need to be scared of our veterans. We need to better understand them. They want to become a part of our civilian communities. Let’s learn what we can about PTSD so we can support these brave men and women and help them move forward with their lives back here on the homefront.
Sarah Privitar, founder of Ribbons for Troops and wife of a United States Marine will be joining us to share how she fell in love with the idea of helping veterans and military service members shortly after meeting her husband, who has served five combat tours and is now one of our veterans who struggles with PTSD and TBI symptoms.
Living with invisible wounds is a constant for Sarah’s family, and she came to realize that they were not alone. She knew that it was important to create an awareness for PTSD and TBI. Sarah founded Ribbons for Troops in October 2010. She will be joining us on VOW Talk Radio to share all about the mission, what has been accomplished so far, and what is coming up in the future.
