Military with PTSD

How one of our vets is spreading awareness and letting neighbors know about PTSD veterans and fireworks
.
Jon Dykes, a combat veteran, served in the Army from January 2000 to October 2010. Jon was with the 5th Squadron, 7th Cavalry, 3rd Infantry Division as a Cavalry Scout Section Leader in Fort Stewart, Georgia. He deployed to Iraq four times during his ten years in the service.

Dykes, was first diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 2003 after his return from his deployment during the invasion/liberation of Iraq. His unit was part of the initial push into Baghdad.

Dykes said, “I was told then that I did not have to deploy anymore, but there was no way that I was going to allow my brothers to go back and me stay home on the sidelines. The way I saw it, as long as I was deploying and fighting the enemy in their own backyard, they would be too busy to come attack my family in theirs. There was no easy deployment for us. No base or FOB. We lived among the Iraqis, moving from house to house constantly. Always surrounded and always outnumbered. I lost my very best friend in 2005 and several other great soldiers over my deployments. No exaggeration or lie. IED, small arms ambushes, and mortar/rocket attacks were a daily occurrence. Never saw a Subway, Burger King, or MWR show on my deployments. We were fighting a war and were constantly reminded of that.”
