Army Specialist Noah proudly served for four years during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Returning home, he married and settled down as a family man, working for the US Postal Service. Eight years after leaving the service, Noah realized that his lingering PTSD was greatly impacting his daily life. Despite his responsibilities as a husband, father and breadwinner, Noah and his wife knew he had to seek mental health treatment. He located a VA program that targeted PTSD, and enrolled, taking time off from his job and leaving his wife and five kids at home without his paycheck. The intensive inpatient program provided great relief to Noah, but the family fell behind on utilities and rent. Referred to SALUTE by the VA, we were able to help Noah’s family with rent and utility payments. Noah is now looking forward to returning to his family and job, renewed with the mental help therapy he received.
“Thank you so much for all of the support you provided for my family! It was such a relief for my wife and I, especially with me being in treatment at the VA. God bless you all.” SPC Noah
