Medal of Honor recipient Ty Carter relates his own struggles with post-traumatic stress in a powerful piece in Foreign Policy by Yochi Dreazen.


Carter speaks out against the stigma attached to mental health care in the military. But he admits that dealing with his post-traumatic stress is a day-to-day struggle. "When you go to counseling you have a festering wound," he is quoted in the piece. "They help you open it up, and let it drain out, and close it back up. You go to counseling again, open the wound, let it drain out. Every time you do that, it hurts a little less."
