Colt Ford "Workin On" PTSD

Just a worthy note here is a reminder that most of the suicides tied to military service are among veterans over the age of 50, but no one wants to mention that simple fact or that they have waited decades longer for help with the same wound called PTSD because they pushed for all the research in the first place.

With the release of a new short film, Colt Ford is honoring soldiers who are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after serving in the armed forces.

The film features Ford’s song “Workin’ On” and takes the song’s music video a step further by explaining more about PTSD and how it impacts veterans’ home lives.

“There’s men and women that are suffering and struggling with PTSD, that have given everything for us to be able to have the freedoms that we do. And because we can’t see it, a lot of times it goes unnoticed,” Ford says in a press release. “So, I just wanted to try and make as big a deal of it as possible so we can get some help.”

Ford introduces the film — which readers can watch above — alongside Lone Survivor Foundation creator and retired U.S. Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, who founded the LSF after he watched several of his fellow soldiers die during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan in 2007.
