The Hidden Wounds family is made up of Veterans who have learned to adapt but still struggle with PTS symptoms and survivors of those who's demons were just too strong. Stories like this break our hearts and it happens daily-even as we are sharing this with you.
It is with our deepest condolences that we share with you the loss of one of our heroes in our own backyard. SSGT Wenger was stationed at Fort Jackson, South Carolina as a Drill Sergeant. Suicide is a major issue contemplated by many of our service members. So many suffer in silence or don't know how to reach out. Unfortunately, SSGT Wenger has become a statistic among our military. He is now part of the over 22 heroes we lose daily. He leaves behind a loving wife and four children. Friends of the family have started a Go Fund Me out of love, respect for their friend, and hope for the futures of the family left behind.

Bless our Vets, I created Veterans Care Alliance Botanicals to Vets. a secret group of men and women and we have members right now battling SI as we speak. But we found alternative herbs to combat PTSD and support one another. I am the daughter of a USAF CMSGT who served during Vietnam. All are welcome! I commend you. "Leave no man behind" ...

You're fighting it when you come home." So what you do think about these new mental health centers? #GetintheFight #BreaktheStigma ... See MoreSee Less
A flash back to a story from 2013. Sometimes a look at history is all it takes to become inspired for yourself or another individual. "Life happens to you. But your power resides in the fact that you can choose how you respond to that." How does this story inspire you? #GetintheFight #BreaktheStigma ... See MoreSee Less
