I hadn't given much thought of taking a life, yet in a matter of seconds, I'd taken several. It was mind numbing. War was nothing like I'd ever imagined, it was loud, gruesome and ugly and I was aghast with fear. Dreams to Nightmares is the sometimes awe inspiring, sometimes harrowing stories of a Vietnam veteran.

These stories highlight how symptoms of PTSD affected three Vietnam Veterans years after the war — and how each of them found support for mental health challenges. Images and experiences from war can leave their mark.
But while some memories are tough to move past, reaching out for support can help you learn how to manage triggers. For years after Vietnam, Warren had nightmares and problems with substance use. When he went to VA for primary care, he was connected to a therapist.
After he was hospitalized for alcohol and drug treatment, his therapist recommended he learn to face some of his triggers. Now Warren has found sobriety and no longer has nightmares. He was diagnosed with PTSD, and he started to become more aware of the symptoms of his condition, including nightmares.
