Reader relates effects incarceration can have

A thing happens when you have been taken by the collar and handed a blanket and a pillow and placed in a cell or holding cell.

Much is made, and rightly so, of the effects of post traumatic stress disorder on people who have been in combat, and perhaps there is some of that in the effect that living in this place called Tygart Valley has on a person.

Such a thing can be bad and not good, for when a person has once been possessed by his incarceration it is not possible for him or her to be truly normal again.

Missing my brother that has PTSD. Thank you for your service!
