PTSD Awareness Benefit Dinner
Military Outreach USA

Starting 5:00 pm
McHenry VFW Post 4600
3002 W. Route 120
Many of our veterans in our community suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Due to the sigma of PTSD these veterans are either afraid or unaware of getting help for their disorder. Our Community plays a larger role than thought in helping these veterans get help. The event is Home Military Oureach’s first attempt at helping the community get a better understanding of how they can help our brave warriors start on the path towards healing.
Special presentation by Major General (retired) James Mukoyama on the topic of Moral Injury.
Major General (retired) James H. Mukoyama, Jr. has over thirty years of total active and reserve component service, and two combat tours. He served proudly in the US Army as an infantry company commander in the 9th Division in Vietnam. In January 2013, MG Mukoyama answered a calling to devote his life to the ministry of Military Outreach USA, a faith-based organization serving our military: Active, Guard, Reserve, Veterans and their families, to cope with the visible and invisible wounds associated with military service to our great nation.
United Relief Foundation feels doing good isn’t a competition and as long as there are Veterans in need there can never be enough good deeds done. For our part, sharing efforts other than are own is another way to help compound the good done.
