Topic: Help a marine mom

HI Everyone,
I am a mom of a marine son who served in Iraq 2 years ago. When he came home he just slept and played video games. He expressed an interest in becoming a police officer. I finally got him to go to the police academy and he graduated in Dec 09. But now he is back to sleeping all day. I have tried talking nice and then stern nothing gets him modivated. We even helped him get a resume together. He will not go out and try to get a job. Last night I said you have to go out tomorrow and get your resume out and thats an order. He does seem to respond to orders. But this morning I tried again and he locked his door. Help

Welcome. Have him go to the VA and see if he has PTSD. This sounds like a classic case. I am currently on my second tour in Iraq and have seen cases like this. See if that will help. Don't give up. Get him the help he may need.

Welcome. TI speaks with the wisdom of he who has been there. Listen to him.

Welcome and courage,
It's hard for a soldier to come back in the real life.
