BREAKING NEWS: Veterans Are Fighting Back Against Sarah Palin's PTSD Allegations

January 23, 2016

Veterans are speaking out about Sarah Palin’s vague remarks concerning PTSD and her son, Track Palin. 26-year-old Track was charged last Tuesday after punching his girlfriend in the head and threatening her with a knife.

"My son, a combat veteran...was fighting for you all, America, in the war zone,” Palin said. “My son, like so many others, came back a bit different; they come back hardened.”

Sarah is bulking Track’s time spent in Iraq, that left him with PTSD, with other veterans suffering from the disorder and also using his condition as an excuse for his domestic violence.

“It can cause a lot of different behaviors, but pinpointing it to one particular incident or something else, that is ludicrous,” Marine Corps veteran Robert Rivera said. “They get withdrawn. You know, like no one cares. They don't want to be around people. They just want to be withdrawn.”

“There are triggers that, you know, they may hear something, a loud explosion or something like that that can trigger a reaction,” Rivera continued. “Just because he's a veteran, domestic abuse isn't right. It doesn't matter whether you’re in the military or not in the military, domestic abuse is wrong no matter which way you look at it.”

Track is currently facing charges of assault, domestic violence, and possession of a weapon while intoxicated. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.189 at the time of his arrest.

I do not know all the facts. so I can not make a judgment on this. I do know that making excuses for your children’s
bad behavior only makes them worse and they end up with no respect for you. I don’t know shat he went threw, how it effected him. and I know some vets become alcoholics and drug addicts to make them forget . But that is not the answer. and what he did was wrong. for every action we take we have a reaction. Lets hope if he needs help this will get him the help he needs. I know the Va is doing a poor job of helping our vets in a timely matter. Lets just pray that Gods will be done in this as all such instances. He does know the whole
true and accurate story behind this crime. andmay I add he is an adult and responsible for his actions. Not Sarah. Sh
e may fully believe what she is saying.
