Out of Combat: Veterans are still dying
I recently heard that a local Connecticut Veteran lost his battle with PTSD this week. I did not know this individual personally, but as a fellow Marine, I felt like I lost one of my brothers. The impact is real, his family and friends will never be the same. I was able to talk to a friend of his and this person instantly told me how much I meant to him. This was extremely meaningful to me. Seeing the struggle that this Marine went through, opens the eyes of family members and friends to the horrible reality that some veterans are experiencing. The experience of war will always stay in the minds of our veterans. While combat maybe over for some, others are still battling everyday.
Cannabis is medicine and it has truly helps me in my battle to acclimate to life. I find joy in the little things that are around me. It could be the smile on my children’s faces, my wife’s voice, or even seeing the work that I can accomplish through Dabbin Dad. I try to keep my eye on the future and focus on helping others around me. We all have a purpose! When you thank a veteran for their service, you never truly know what they did or saw, but war is not pretty. Many of these wounds are not visible.
Cannabis can save lives!!! It’s time to change the stigma in this country.
I am an advocate and I will continue the fight for veterans and anyone that finds relief with this amazing plant. Who is with me???
