Studying sleep problems that affect Veterans - VAntage Point

"My research [how sleep is affected by common conditions among Veterans] particularly benefits Veterans because they are disproportionately affected by TBI and PTSD – both of which can cause sleep problems. For example, my team recently discovered that Veterans who are diagnosed with a TBI or PTSD are at greater risk for rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD), which causes violent movement during the REM stage of sleep.

RBD has been linked to the development of Parkinson’s disease. However, we still don’t know whether Veterans with RBD are also at higher risk of Parkinson’s disease – and if so, how might TBI/PTSD trigger this neurodegeneration? These are incredibly important questions that need to be answered for the sake of understanding what our Veterans are going through."

I just want to take a minute and thank all the Veterans in this group. It has been my pleasure to be the information and awareness officer! I look forward to getting over all of this COVID stuff, and really start to do some more cool events. I have been a part of this groups since I got in the yard and I have never had a negative experience. This group has helped me in so many ways. A special Shout out to Rick Nelson for being such a great Mentor. Ive never met a finer Marine. Please help me to get the word out to any veteran you see in the yard. We all need help at one point or another. Lets do our best to make sure everyone knows that they don't have to go at it alone!
Just wanted to express my gratitude for all of you that have bravely served our country, you're all incredible heroes! I have a great amount of respect for our troops and have been feeling especially patriotic recently. I decided to watch David Salzberg's latest combat documentary called Above the Best (some of you may be familiar with his other combat films) and I was thoroughly impressed. The movie follows soldiers and pilots deployed in 2007 in the most dangerous valley of Afghanistan and shines a spotlight on the danger these men and women put themselves in to protect not only our country, but also each other. Highly recommend if this sounds like a film you could enjoy! The trailer's on Youtube.
With 3000+ Veterans at NNSY, we should be able to Fill the Field. Come out in your Battle Rattle and show what your made of. Don't just "LIKE", Show Up!
Crew, don't forget about Mondays 9-11 observance Fall-in for Morning Colors. Be safe doing the Hurricane Preps this weekend, and check on your 'Battles'.
Happy Birthday Puddle Jumpers.
