Take the Legion's TBI/PTSD survey

If you've suffered from TBI or PTSD, the Legion would like to hear from you.

You are being asked to participate in a survey of healthcare experiences developed and administered by the American Legion and conducted by Dr. Jeff Greenberg of Data Recognition Corporation. All results of this survey will be received and evaluated by Dr. Greenberg. Survey data will be securely stored and finally destroyed in accordance with industry standards.

Your participation is requested because of your status as a veteran. The American Legion is interested in better understanding the experiences of veterans who receive care at facilities of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Specifically, the American legion is requesting information from individuals who have been diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or both. Our questions focus on the types of treatment that veterans are offered and the perceived benefits of treatment.

This survey is entirely confidential. Although the survey requests demographic information such as age, branch of service and facility where treatment is received, this information will not be used or made available to identify the individual who has completed the survey.

This survey is entirely voluntary. You may choose not to complete the survey. Further, you may decline to finish completing the survey at any point up until you submit your final completed survey.

The information gathered for this survey is for informational purposes and will be presented to key stakeholders in government, industry and media to support the American Legion’s goals of ensuring the finest quality of care for those who have served this nation in her times of need.

We thank you for your participation and more importantly thank you for your service.

 

Anyway, the survey CAN BE REACHED BY CLICKING HERE.

In 1972-3-4-5-6 I pleaded with the VA for treatment for my PTSD. I was refused every time I applied for help. The refusal was because I had PTSD and I had a Top Secret Crypto Clearance. They could not find anyone that would speak with me about my problems. I turned to the Veterans Outreach programs and AA. I still have issues but not as sever as I once did. I am glad to see that the VA is now stepping up with help - instead of being turned away.

YOUR TS CRYPTO SHOULD HAVE NO BEARING ON PTSD TREATMENT. MY CLEARANCE WA TS. IT HAS
NEVER COME UP AT ANY TIME DURING TREATMENT. MY BEING IN MI ONLY COMES UP IF I AM ASKED.
MY PROBLEM IS: SINCE I WAS IN MI IN 'NAM, I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN IN COMBAT DURING TET!
THERE IS NO PROOF OF COMBAT "IN MY RECORDS", WHICH MEANS THEY NEVER READ THE MORNING
REPORTS. IF YOU NEED TO CHAT, I'M AROUND MOST DAYS.
i KNOW IT'S NOT ORIGINAL BUT I FEEL YOUR PAIN. P. BOOS - 519MI BN, SAIGON '67, '68.
