His family has contacted me asking for information. I was told he has been unable to get the help he needs from the VA. They shared stories with me about his actions here, it sounds like he came home physically but not mentally.

I can relate on how he is feeling after 10 year active duty army. My train of thought and emotion is not the same anymore and it's so hard dealing with people who never serve and they are always judging you. I'm on the verge of a breakup because her family fears for her daughter life even though she has told them I'm would never do anything to harm her. My B.S meter is very low and I don't play games.

SGT Dupree, If you need to talk feel free to message me or to message those in this thread. You can see by the comments that there are other Soldiers more than willing to listen. Sometimes that is the most important thing to have, someone you can relate to who will listen and not judge. All the best to you.

SGT John Dupree,
I totally agree with CPT M Cannonie. I am in western Oklahoma if you would like to take the time, to come out here, I have a very caring canyon,that enjoys listening and don't get up tight when screamed at.
If in another light my canyon has some very deaf catfish that aren't judgemental until you bring them out of there world into ours.
I am not trying to make light out of your situation, I am not any kind or professional guru or dude, I am just a old Grunt that make room for fellow soldiers.
Talk to someone, almost anyone even your favorite tree. By doing so you will then be practiced to talk to someone else more sympathetic that can help guide you back. You are NOT broken, you are NOT a problem, you are NOT THE PROBLEM, you ARE who you are and your daughter loves you oh so very much. She may not understand you, but you ARE the #1 man in her life and she need you to be her # ONE.

I also had problems with the Va mental health. They wanted to put me inpatient for 3 months, and I refused. Then they said I could do a 3 day a week program, again I refused. Then I was told don't not get help, just so you can get a disability check. I walked out before punching the civilian psych doc. Someone told me about the Vet canter here in Boise, so I contacted them. I have been going to the Vet center for the last 5ish years and love it. Give the Vet center a try and see if it makes a difference for you. My Dr. is a vet not a combat vet, but we still relate. My counselor is a combat vet, he is good and helps a lot.

CPT,
What sort of support group and what town/area does he live in? My wife is a case manager in the veteran services field and should be able to identify resources. PM me if you prefer.
