Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors Marine Veteran Robert Torres.  Robert served for 13 years and survived 3 deployments  in Iraq, Fallujah and Afghanistan.  After his service Robert talked about how he missed the camaraderie, the brotherhood and because of that he really struggled adjusting to civilian life.  Diagnosed with PTSD he spiraled downward and in 2014 attempted suicide. Soon after he discovered help, not in the form of medication but in the form of float therapy.  Floating, weightlessly, quietly, has helped Robert a lot and he can’t say enough about the benefits of it.  He’s now helping spread the word to help other Veterans with PTSD.  Thank you Robert for sharing your story and thank you for your service.
