I served in the United States Navy for 10 years, doing several tours Iraq and Afghanistan a few other places. When I returned from Afghanistan I was diagnosed with PTSD. I was in disbelief that the upstanding leader I had once been was no longer there. Shortly thereafter, I found myself being discharged from the Navy. I quote,”You no longer fit the needs of the Navy”. To me it was the same as being told I was useless, broken and no good.
