Program Last Week -  
With Tony Sandoval
Sponsored & introduced by Kelli Scott
Tony explained what he does as a Chelan County veterans service officer, the biggest issues facing local vets, and a general "state of veterans in NCW" and what Vet Corps is doing for local area military veterans.  He reminded the audience that all veterans have stories, resulting in PTSD for many. PTSD  (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) can carry anxiety and depression which are hard to treat.  He has been working with Confluence Health to get improved treatments.  He prefers the term "Soldier's Heart".   Soldier’s Heart was a term for the odd symptoms soldiers during the civil war experienced after the war was over, most notably odd heart rhythms. It is the precursor to what was later referred to as “battle fatigue”, “shell shock”, and finally PTSD.  He suggested that when thanking veterans for their serve, consider adding "I will remember".

Tony has worked with almost 1800 vets and their families over the last 5 years and wants his group to be part of a healing journey for them.  He praised the WDVA as a helpful entity for vets.
