According to the PTSD Foundation of America, one in three soldiers is diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Heather Demetrios shows her readers firsthand what it’s like to love someone with PTSD in her novel I’ll Meet You There. As someone who has both dated and is a sister to men in the military, I have seen how being involved with war can affect a person. The worst part about these brave men and women falling ill to PTSD, is that less than 40 percent of them will get help. Another alarming result is that on an average day, five active military members will attempt suicide. PTSD is a problem that won’t be going away anytime soon whether it’s caused from war or other traumatic events. Demetrios brings to light this disturbing illness that affects the lives of our veterans every day.
