We're also highlighting a page on the web site with basic information about the United States Marine Corps that every Marine family member should know.

The Texas premier of "My Child" will be shown after the MarineParents.com conference at the Crowne Plaza Houston Downtown on Sunday, April 23 at 3:00 p.m.

Help for Families of Returning Marines
 
PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Down Range to Iraq and Back

With the recent return of many battalions from Iraq, there are more questions about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) including what to look for and whether or not to be concerned with "new behaviors" you may be seeing in your Marine.

We offer an online PTSD discussion group as well as resources to help families with questions. Information on the discussion group and the resources area can be found using the link below.

We also recommend the book "Down Range To Iraq and Back" which is available from Amazon.com from a link on our web site. We are offering a free copy to all Conference attendees as well as dinner guests and Evening Event ticket holders in Houston, April 21-23, 2006.
