In July, 10 students from East Middle, South Middle and West Middle schools, completed the Fly to Learn software, which is a 10-lesson curriculum using virtual airplanes to simulate flight. As graduates of the aviation program, these students were then able to participate in the glider flights arranged by the Eagleville Soaring Club. They had a chance to fly in a two-seat glider under the direct supervision of an instructor pilot. They are taken by a tow plane up to 2,000 feet above the ground and released for a 15-20 minute flight in the beautiful sky over Eagleville, Tennessee. (Courtesy photo)

PTSD Toolkit Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can occur after someone has gone through a traumatic event, such as war-related combat, sexual or physical assault, or a natural or man-made disaster. Because this disorder impacts not only the person who suffers from it, but those who are around them, it is important that we educate all military members about PTSD. With enhanced awareness, we will be able to prevent many people from developing this condition, and will be able to help those who suffer from PTSD receive early treatment before symptoms become disabling and chronic.
