This is Gene. He was drafted to fight in Vietnam as infantry. Now he is homeless.

I was asking him if he has talked to the VA (veteran affairs) about getting help, and he just started crying and telling me about all of the things he had seen while fighting. He said when he went to the VA they told him he has PTSD and anxiety. Then he asked me if I thought those were real things or if he was just not being [tough enough]. I assured him of the realness of these things and how his body and mind were not created to see and experience such things - and I encouraged him to go back to the VA for additional help (in addition to giving him other resources for veterans).

Please pray for this sweet man and the many others that are in his situation.
