“Invisible Vet”: Unseen Wounds of War Veterans

Carrick Brain Center, a treatment center that specializes in combat veterans suffering from symptoms and conditions associated with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain injury (TBI), is launching a campaign to raise public awareness of the invisible wound of war.

Greg Coker, a retired Army aviator and a member of the Night Stalkers, an elite Army Special Operations regiment, is the focus of a series of short videos by Carrick Brain Center. These emotional films bring to light veterans of war who are hidden in plain sight each day walking among the daily lives of Americans. Each video of the series focuses on a real war vet suffering from invisible wounds incurred through combat.

The main point of “Invisible Vet” is to raise awareness about the unseen wounds of our fellow Americans; in addition, the creators hope to raise money for veterans to attend treatment programs that would be otherwise unavailable to them through the Veterans’ Administration. Kara Williams, Director of Care to Share, already feels the winds of change. “There is a whole movement of people who are willing to support America’s veterans with their time and money. The general public is becoming more and more aware of the tremendous sacrifices that have been made and realizing something needs to change…and we will make a difference…one veteran at a time.”
