“We are here to stop the pandemic rate of our soldiers’ and first responders’ suicides and we need your help,” said Gene Birdwell, Founder of the Birdwell Foundation for PTSD. “No one heals alone, and we are asking you to join our effort to stop the PTSD tragedy by calling us today, if you or someone you know suffers with PTSD.”
"I've recently lost a Veteran brother to alcoholism as a result of his military PTSD." said Pat Bondurant, National Board Member of the Birdwell Foundation for PTSD. "I am committed to helping the Foundation's extraordinary programs take root and thrive nationally.”
“As a Vietnam Veteran, (U.S. Navy), I have been given a new combat mission in life. The Birdwell Foundation has afforded me a most honorable and distinguished opportunity to service Veterans (Korean War through GWOT) with PTSD issues and their other needs. I accept this mission/endeavor with the same drive, dedication, and integrity as I did as a Tank Company Commander, 2nd ID, South Korea and as a Battalion Operations Officer, 1st Cavalry Division, Ft. Hood, Texas. The Cartersville, Georgia, PTSD Group effort, is in fact, having a profound and most positive effect on veterans and family Members,” said Gary S. Conley, Major, Armor United States Army (retired).
“Several years ago, after contemplating suicide and being led out of the darkness of PTSD personally by the Birdwell Foundation, my entire life is dedicated to the Birdwell Foundation mission of eradicating PTSD related suicide,” said Roger Marshall Jr., Combat Veteran and National Director of Operations/Outreach, Birdwell Foundation.
