Promoting a Happy and Healthy Life for Combat Veterans.
Brady Duane Oberg was a Combat Veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. He was also a husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a courageous, tough, and highly skilled infantryman who was second to none, however coming home and adjusting back into the civilian world was a challenge. On August 6th, 2015, Brady took his own life while deeply suffering from PTSD stemming from his combat tour in Afghanistan from 2010-2011.
Brady was a highly intellectual man and strongly believed education was the key to solving much of the world’s problems.
Making a Difference:
In order to make a positive impact on the lives of our veterans suffering from PTSD, The Brady Oberg Legacy Foundation aims to provide scholarships and grants for combat veterans wanting to start a career in counseling fellow veterans. Counselors who actually understand what veterans with PTSD have gone through are more capable of helping address deep-rooted combat related issues.
While Brady was seeking counseling, he mentioned that most counselor’s “didn’t get it” when talking about combat situations because they hadn’t been there. Help us place the ones who do get it in the right places and start making a long lasting difference.
