Military Sexual Trauma for Veterans





Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can occur following a life-threatening event like military combat, natural disasters, terrorist incidents, serious accidents, or violent personal assaults like rape. Most survivors of trauma return to normal given a little time. However, some people have stress reactions that don't go away on their own, or may even get worse over time. These individuals may develop PTSD.

People who suffer from PTSD often suffer from nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, and feeling emotionally numb. These symptoms can significantly impair a person's daily life.

PTSD is marked by clear physical and psychological symptoms. It often has symptoms like depression, substance abuse, problems of memory and cognition, and other physical and mental health problems. The disorder is also associated with difficulties in social or family life, including occupational instability, marital problems, family discord, and difficulties in parenting.If you are suffering from PTSD, or know someone who is, the following list of resources and information will help you find help in dealing with PTSD and related conditions.

The Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) is an independent Agency in the Executive branch of the US Government. The AFRH provides residences and related services for certain retired and former members of the US Armed Forces (24 US Code 10, Subchapter 411). The Chief Operating Officer (COO) is the head of the Agency and its communities and is subject to the authority, direction and control of the Secretary of Defense.

The origins of the AFRH go back to the 19th century. The US Navy first established the US Naval Asylum in 1831, and then the US Army established the US Soldiers’ Home in 1851. Ever since, thousands of former US military service members have enjoyed a safe and secure retirement here. In 1991, the two distinct Homes merged as one: the AFRH.

Together we have evolved into the premier retirement community for America’s military veterans. We offer modern facilities, dynamic activities, healthy meals, wellness programs, advanced care, and much more. The AFRH currently has two communities in Gulfport, MS (AFRH-G) and Washington, DC (AFRH-W).
