Welcome to United Children of Veterans. I’m glad you’re here. My name is Christal Presley, and my goal is to educate the public about how children can be affected by a father’s or mother’s war experience. Thirty Days with My Father: Finding Peace from Wartime PTSD is my personal story of the devastating effects the Vietnam War had on my family when my father returned home with PTSD. I never understood the war–or my father. It would be 30 years before I felt brave enough to ask for his story. It was only then that I began to heal.
I’d be honored if you’d join our Facebook community and check out the blog entries below.
