David Brock a.k.a. PTSDDaddy was born and raised in Kansas City, on the Kansas side of the state line. After completing a Bachelors in Business Administration with Information Systems from Pittsburg State University, PTSDDaddy joined the Army.
PTSDDaddy spent 9 ½ years serving for the United States Army in 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) where he deployed 3 times to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom between the years of 2009 through 2012.
After his final deployment to Afghanistan, PTSDDaddy had the opportunity to earn a Master’s of Arts in Security Studies from the National Defense University. PTSDDaddy’s father passed away at the end of his Master’s program 2013.
During his journey towards his Master’s he had the opportunity to see a doctor more than once. In doing so he found out his back was injured pretty bad and he could no longer serve in the US Army. PTSDDaddy medically retired, seeking treatment for PTSD as well as pain management in the process.
Since seeing counselors, PTSDDaddy has discovered many veteran friends endure similar challenges yet never seem to discuss them. That’s when PTSDDaddy started his blog in an attempt to put a book together for his brothers and sisters –in-arms.
Since then the Blog has exploded and has been the focus for PTSDDaddy as well as his #TriggerTuesday video’s and now his teaming up with Carl at The Bunker Room to help get the word out.
