About Today’s Episode:
Master Sergeant Carlos Cambre tells how God saved his life and energized him with a new focus to serve even more people.Thousands of soldiers are deployed and will be separated from their families. It is part of the price that is paid for the freedom we all are privileged to have as citizens of the United States of America. Many of our soldiers, when they do return to their loved ones, suffer from Combat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or Combat PTSD. Many factors can impact the extent of the reaction to a traumatic event. These include the amount of death and devastation witnessed, and the degree of responsibility felt for not preventing the event. Master Sergeant Carlos Cambre speaks to us as a soldier and a combat veteran of multiple deployments. He is also joined by his wife, Vanessa, who shares her perspective as a wife and mother.
