Drumroll please…it’s Twitter Tuesday!

Today’s Twitter Tuesday user: @veteransairlift

@veteransairlift advertises themselves in their Twitter bio as “free rides for vets in jets” and their background links to their organization’s blog. Veterans Airlift is a all-volunteer network that provides free transportation to veterans for “medical and other compassionate purposes,” according to their blog’s headline. They Tweet about their organization and link themselves to the organization’s official website.

Twitter Tuesday: @FreeMountaineer

This Twitter Tuesday post is a special post because recently one of my Twitter friends became dissociated with an organization he helped found.

Today’s Twitter Tuesday user: @FreeMountaineer (formerly@OpPTSD_Mac.)

@FreeMountaineer is a United States Army Veteran who Served from 1994-2004 as an M1 Tank Crewman and a UH-60 Helicopter Mechanic, according to OperationPTSD.org. Mac was reaching out to those suffering through his Twitter and on OperationPTSD.org, since he is no longer associated with the organization, I hope he is still working to end the stigma of PTSD.

Twitter Tuesday: @OpPTSD_Jason

Drumroll please…it’s Twitter Tuesday!

Today’s Twitter Tuesday user: @OpPTSD_Jason

@OpPTSD_Jason is someone I have been following on my blogroll through his blog Operation PTSD, but I did not know he had a Twitter. He is now blogging on OperationPTSD.org, which he co-founded with @OpPTSD_Mac, but they have since parted ways.

Jason is a United States Navy Desert Storm Veteran who was diagnosed with PTSD in 2003. Both his blog and his Twitter show PTSD is not a life-ending illness, and gives a human voice and face to a disease so many veterans are hiding because of its stigma. I am looking to feature him on my blog in the near future once I delve further into the issue of PTSD.
