“When I came back from Afghanistan, I was angry, depressed, and suicidal. Transcendental Meditation has lifted my depression, eased my pain, and given me my life back.” — Luke Jensen, Operation Enduring Freedom Veteran

35% of U.S. soldiers deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq since 2001 are said to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Symptoms include anxiety, hyper-vigilance, startle response, nightmares or flashbacks, insomnia, anger and withdrawal. The Veterans Administration says nearly half of all veterans with PTSD have never sought help; of those who do, half receive inadequate treatment.

Everyday in the U.S., 22 veterans commit suicide. Protect those who protected us by spreading the word.

The David Lynch Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c))(3), established “Operation Warrior Wellness” to teach the stress-reducing TM® technique to 10,000 veterans with PTSD and their families. To support this project, visit www.DavidLynchFoundation.org.
