My name is Cheryl Softich, the mother of Army Specialist Noah C. Pierce. My son served two tours of duty in Iraq, and even though he physically returned home, mentally my son never came home. Noah had PTSD and was a Prisoner of War in his own mind and left untreated the PTSD as it progressively worsened.
... In my case, I have a mission, a goal. That goal is something I refer to as NOAH'S CLAUSE... I believe that we owe it all to our servicemen and women along with their families to provide this service. It is a small price to pay considering all they have given to us. I have the right to speak my mind and try to make changes for the better....I have this right because of all of our Veterans, past, present and future. We all do, and maybe it is time to remind those that have forgotten.
