PTSD & Psalm Twenty-Three: Coming Up out of PTSD's Trench will draw you into the very essence of post-traumatic stress disorder. Robert Scholten does this through vivid word pictures and clarity of writing that touch hearts and minds. Robert's passion and compassion for veterans and families struggling with PTSD opens new avenues of understanding for a very misunderstood reality of life.
Robert survived Vietnam without a scratch as a gunner on a Duster attached to the 173rd Infantry Airborne. However, he was unaware of an internal wound. He left Vietnam, but Vietnam never left him.
His journey through PTSD will amaze you. Robert buried everything negative about Vietnam. He never talked about the bloodshed. It was imprisoned under lock and key deep in his soul, never to see the light of day. Nearly forty years after his tour of Vietnam, Robert fell prey to PTSD.
In November of 2007, Robert was admitted into the Lexington, Kentucky, VA's six-week, clinical, in-house PTSD rehabilitation program. He remains under their care. Up from that experience, and through the years since, he has felt compelled to bear his soul in hopes of assisting other PTSD sufferers, and those who care about them.
