TODAY, I AM Hopeful
U.S. Army Veteran
For the first time in my life, I recognized that I was not to blame — that there was hope.
For 40 years, Valerie was silent about the military sexual trauma she experienced in the U.S. Army. When her husband thought she was showing some symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder, he encouraged her to go to their local Vet Center, where Valerie met the therapist who helped changed her life.
What Made the Difference
- Treatment after military sexual trauma (MST)
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
