Hi, I'm an 8th grade student, and first off I want to say thank you for your service in the Army.I just want to say I love your videos. I think what you're doing id great, and never stop getting your message out to the world. You're an inspiration for many people. Iv'e been into watching your videos since last summer, and I always check for new ones. I also admire your personality, and how you don't care what other people think about you, you know what's right, and you're not afraid to speak out

Thanks for the words of encouragement and thanks for the support. Just so you know I’ll be back to making videos next month since I am moving into an apartment on my own and will be able to fully focus. You could stay in contact with me via my website which will be launching next month as well. It’s www.theiraqveteran.com

Just wanted to tell you I saw your video about PTSD symptoms. Well, I am not American but I went to the Middle East for 5 consecutive years 2007 - 2011. I recognize myself in what you tell about yourself in that video. I struggled alot with it. But I wanted to tell you that I found a way which helps getting rid of the worst. Its called Vipassana meditation. I did a 6-week intensive meditation course and my life started anew. Look up Gil Fronsdal's Inroduction to Meditation :) Peace!

Thanks for sharing. I did an alternative treatment called Rapid Resolution Therapy which worked wonders for me. I will however research what you shared with me because on my website I have a PTSD section where I will be doing articles on different forms of PTSD treatment.

Hi! I was wondering what can I do to help make a change if I'm under age... I'm 15 and I live in Costa Rica; and I really want to do something good for the world, but it's tough because I depend on my parents economically, in transport, etc. I also live far from the center, where everything happens, so... I'd really appreciate your help... Thanks in advance!

The good thing about the times we are in now is we have the power of the internet. You can make an impact in the world just by sharing information and ideas via the internet. You could also make an impact by talking to your friends, family and people around where you live. You could go out and do small things for people in need in your area. Anything no matter how small it may seem helps.

Hello, i was wondering if I could have your cell number. to stay in contact. Because I do not have a Facebook account, Twitter account, Youtube account, or e-mail. My parents will not let me.

Sorry but I don’t give out my phone number to people I don’t know. Thanks for all the support though.

What up Citizen Soldiers? TexasGrown409 aka The Iraq Veteran. I served in the Army from 2005-2008 and I was in Baghdad, Iraq during the 2007 “Surge”. I would like to apologize for helping destroy the country I love along with the world I love by serving in an illegal war that did nothing but take away our freedom. I am now truly fighting for our freedom by attempting to wake up people and expose all the lies our Government has told us and to all the evil they do. You don’t have to believe the truth but all I ask is that you are at least aware. Just because you ignore the world that is around doesn’t mean it will ignore you. I’m also a YouTube partner, check out some of my videos. www.youtube.com/TexasGrown409. Much love from The Iraq Veteran.
