“Soon after 9/11 happened we became aware that there were major problems with service member PTSD primarily related to blast exposures that resulted in lots of carnage, a lot of people killed and seriously injured, and children injured in the war zone. I had to do something right away that was fairly impactful, and I knew I had to treat it as effectively as possible for the ones who wanted to stay in the the fight, so doing more population research was neccessary.” -Alan Peterson, PhD, ABPP, as quoted in the Rivard Report
