Valdosta Veteran hopes to help current military members

July 12, 2007

Valdosta - A Valdosta veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is hoping to help others who have the illness.

Larry Cornelius served in the army in Vietnam.

But long after he returned home, the sights and sounds of war stayed with him, straining his life and the life of his family.

Now, he's created a website called Rehab 911.

The sight explains the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress.

He hopes it will help educate military members and their families to understand and better cope with the disorder.  "When you can't see the injury, loved ones such as my wife, had difficulty because she didn't see. What she saw was this, a healthy looking guy. So it was confusing for her," Cornelius says.

The website, www.rehab911.org also provides the contact information for doctors and organizations that can help.

He hopes as the website progresses, it will list doctors in all states.
