WHRO is proud to be a part of a multi-year Veterans initiative to engage the community to help support veterans as they transition to civilian life in Hampton Roads.  On the next edition of Another View, we'll talk about African American veterans and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  One in three African American Vietnam vets suffer with PTSD, and studies show that Black female veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan disproportionately suffer with PTSD as compared to male veterans.  On the next Another View we'll talk about veterans and PTSD - what it is, how to treat it and how families can assist the veteran with this psychological and physical disorder.  Our guests include Ryan Douglas who served as an Army Scout for five years during the Iraq/Afghan wars and has PTSD;  Sidney Lee, President of the African American Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Association; and Robin Renee Thompson, MSW and Certified Service Officer for Disabled Veterans.  Plus Lisa Godley talks with S. Epatha Merkerson, star of the hit television series, Law and Order.  It's all on Another View, Friday, July 18 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us on this blog!
