  • Brothers man helicopters for Polk's USAAAD

    Feb 11, 2013

    Being stationed with a Family member while in the Army is often times a difficult task. True, the Army does its best to assign husbands and wives to the same post -- or at least in the same vicinity -- but a tour with a sibling is next to impossible. That task becomes even more difficult if the siblings have the same job -- particularly if the number of Soldiers who do that job Army-wide is small. You can therefore understand the elation felt by Chief Warrant Officer 3 Matt DeGroot and his younger brother, Chief Warrant Officer 2 Ben DeGroot when they received orders to Fort Polk after tours in Afghanistan. That elation grew even more when the helicopter pilots were assigned to the same company -- U.S. Army Air Ambulance Detachment, 5th Aviation Battalion.

  • PTSD and its role-reversal effect on family caregivers

    Feb 8, 2013

    Many family members of recently-deployed service members find themselves in a different roll, with new responsibilities, upon their service member's return from combat. If Post traumatic Stress Disorder is involved, family members may now occupy a different and greater care-giver role, and in many circumstances may even be thriving in that role. The effect of PTSD on primary care-giving family members can seem minimal, but is often of longer duration and greater intensity than they are used to providing. New opportunities to avoid PTSD triggers such as avoiding large crowds and specific topics of discussion present a growing challenge. Family member caregivers are directly affected by the PTSD symptoms of a loved one.
