The War at Home: PTSD Strikes Marriage
(2007-11-28)
(wfcr) - Earlier this year, we introduced you to Peter and Anna Mohan, a young western Massachusetts couple. Peter has suffered from post tramatic stress disorder, or P-T-S-D, ever since returning from his military tour in Iraq. When we talked with Peter and Anna in April, they believed he was on the mend, but their marriage did not survive the strain. They're getting a divorce. The Mohans agreed to speak again with WFCR's Karen Brown, as a way to let others know about the effects of war on the homefront.
