War sounds

The video shows combat footage of bombs dropping, buildings exploding, guns firing, tanks exploding, and missiles being launched. The footage is accompanied by the sounds of warfare.

However, later on in the video, it turns out the sounds of warfare that were heard in the combat footage weren’t sounds of warfare at all. Instead, they were noises that are heard in everyday life that are similar to the noises that are heard in combat. Alarms going off, balloons popping, washing machines spinning, fireworks exploding and other noises are similar to the noises that can be heard in combat.

“Daily sounds can bring veterans right back to war,” the video says.

“Operation Warrior Wellness (OWW), a division of the David Lynch Foundation, offers the Transcendental Meditation-based Resilient Warrior Program, a simple, easy-to-learn, evidence-based approach to relieving symptoms of PTSD and major depression and developing greater resilience to stress,” the David Lynch Foundation’s website reads.

Helping the veteran community.

Image may contain: 2 people, people standing

This veteran is from the Vietnam conflict and is a former POW. He needed to move residences at short notice. The previous landlord didn’t want to fix the house where he was staying. Instead of fixing the house, the landlord gave the veteran 3 days to move out. Tri-state Veterans Community Alliance (TVCA) contacted me and Ken to see if we could help this veteran.

 

I got a vision from God to help the veteran community in some way. This was our first project from that vision and it went well. The veteran needed the next home painted and help with the move. On Saturday my son, Ken, and I painted the house as much as we could. The new landlord didn’t bring enough paint, so we did what we could with the time and supplies we had. On Monday, Jack, a friend from my church Crossroads, Elizabeth, a member of Team RWB, Ria, a member of Team Rubicon, and I packed and made 3 trips of furniture and other goods to move the veteran.

 

We are trying to start a group that would help veterans with things, like moving, if they don’t have the money for it. Also, with painting if they don’t have anyone to paint for them and other things like putting a window A/C in. The idea is to connect as many of the organizations that want to help veterans together to make an impact on the every day life of the disabled veterans in the community. This was an effort put together from TVCA, to Ken and I, then we contacted Team RWB, Team Rubicon, WWP, Good Will, and Easter Seals. There was only a small group of us that came together and it was a great success.
I would like to know if there is an organization doing something like what we did and learn more of any ones experience.
