A general’s new mission: leading a charge against PTSD

Brig. Gen. Donald C. Bolduc commands American Special Operations Forces in Africa. He is a Green Beret, has completed eight tours of combat, survived a helicopter crash and bombings. He has PTSD and a brain injury. And he wants to reduce the stigma that such injuries can have and get treatment for those like him reports Dionne Searcey in The Saturday Profile of the New York Times. 

Bolduc didn’t seek help for 12 years, which is common.

“The powerful thing is that I can use myself as an example,” he said. “And thank goodness not everybody can do that. But I’m able to do it, so that has some sort of different type of credibility to it.”
