Medal of Honor recipient Ty Carter waging war on PTSD

By JANE BENSON
 
NATICK, Mass. — Staff Sgt. Ty Carter has two words for Soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, "Get help." The Medal of Honor recipient brought this message to the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center Feb. 19. He developed post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD, after his experiences at Combat Outpost Keating, where he said every day was "like the Wild Wild West." Firefights were a constant, and Oct. 3, 2009, conditions escalated to the extreme when more than 300 anti-Afghan forces attempted to overrun the outpost.
