Happy 231st Birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard

Happy 231st Birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

The Coast Guard is unique among our military services. During peace time, it belongs to the Department of Homeland Security but can be transferred to the Department off Defense by the President when operations require their service. Daily, the Coast Guard patrols our coasts for drug smugglers, human trafficking, and both domestic and international terrorism.

National PTSD Awareness Day is June 27

By CAPT(ret) Mary Smart, NFRW Armed Services Committee

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has existed for millennia but has only been acknowledged medically as a disease in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM) since 1980. PTSD has been known by many names:  railway spine, shell shock, and combat fatigue. However, this disorder can be the result of a myriad of traumatic events such as a natural disaster, near-fatal accident, terrorist insurrection and war, sexual violence, or serious threats to a person or their family.
