Like many things, OperationPTSD.org was over before it could really flourish. Earlier in the week, OperationPTSD.org closed down the site with a final post by Mac stating irreconcilable differences between him and @OpPTSD_Jason as the cause for the split.
So where are they now?
@OpPTSD_Jason is working on a new PTSD project: OperationPTSD.com, a multi user interface that allows users to register and contribute to the content posted on the site. There is a chat/discussion forum and I think that is an amazing idea because it allows those afflicted to talk to those who support. The site is in it’s beginning stages right now and is scheduled to go completely live on Veterans Day, according to Jason’s Twitter.
@OpPTSD_Mac is now @FreeMountaineer and has taken on a new project: ghosts. Mac and his wife are currently working on hillbillyhauntings.com. From what I’ve been told by Mac, I may be doing some guest blogging, which is exciting for me to branch out into another topic and audience. If you have experience with ghosts, or know someone who has, please follow Mac on Twitter @FreeMountaineer and send him a message.
I will be making my account on OperationPTSD.com later this week so look for me on the site blogging about the same topics I cover on this blog.
Have you created your account on OperationPTSD.com yet? Why or why not?
How do you all feel about OperationPTSD.org’s split?
Drumroll please…it’s Twitter Tuesday!
This is a new type of post being added to the blog. Every Tuesday I will showcase a new Twitter user that either found me on Twitter, or that I found Tweeting about veterans.
Today’s Twitter Tuesday user: @OperationPTSD
@OperationPTSD is the Twitter user connected with OperationPTSD.org and their mission is to bring awareness to PTSD and those afflicted with the tragic ailment. They aimed to end the stigma associated with PTSD, and openly admit the two co-founders of Operation PTSD both have PTSD. They are also the amazing Twitter user behind what will be some of my biggest posts to date: the story of an Army Ranger with PTSD being forced out of the Army without an Honorable Discharge.
OperationPTSD.org was maintained by two Twitter users: @OpPTSD_Jason and @OpPTSD_Mac, but they recently split and OperationPTSD.org became OperationPTSD.com.
Add this user to your Twitter followers, and like always, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @heatherbray. I’d love to hear from you. Happy Twittering!
