[2 April, 2014] - Veteran's Support

Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Southeast Minnesota is currently working on a collaboration with Veterans groups, area organizations and interested individuals to explore issues affecting families and Servicemembers directly related to service.

These issues may include, but are not limited to, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other potential psychological or emotional trauma. These kinds of challenges have existed for many years, with recognition of the problem elusive and evolving.

CBS Sunday Morning explored these struggles in March, 2014, including even families from the Viet Nam era.

Our coalition is beginning to build around what we envision as a model destination treatment center for Veterans and Veteran families dealing with PTSD, related trauma or stress injuries and all other health care needs.

We believe this is a serious and continuing problem not only for those who have served our country but also for those family members who may not be recognized as serving as their loved ones have. As we develop our concept and plan we will update this site with information, links and stories of success..
