    Almost everyone experiences symptoms of PTSD especially Police Officers and First Response people. If graphic images of carnage could elicit PTSD then every kid in the United States other than the Amish would qualify. The point is that the image that the WWP portrays is genuine Purple Heart Wounded Warriors that people respond to but the actual funding seems to go to projects other than Purple Heart Veterans.

    I'm skeptical of some claims of PTSD but I get what you're saying

    If (and I'm just speculating) about 20% or even 30% of WWP money goes to Veterans that never experienced combat but claim to have mental disabilities , what would it say about the project that calls itself Wounded Warriors? Should they rename the Veterans victims project?
