On March 6th, Carol Schultz Vento will share her story on the Voice of Warriors radio program as a daughter of a 82nd Airborne paratrooper, Arthur Dutch Schultz.
Her father was portrayed in The Longest Day and written about in World War II history books. But like most WWII veterans, he did not talk about what is now commonly refer to as Post Traumatic Stress.
She decided to write The Hidden Legacy of World War II about father’s experiences on D-Day, Market Garden, and the Battle of the Bulge. She details how the lasting consequences of the trauma of World War II impacted her family.
Her father’s unacknowledged PTSD led to family turmoil and trauma and it led her to fill in the missing pieces not talked about by the World War II veterans who were stoic and unwavering and rarely talked about their war experiences.
You can tune into VOW Talk Radio on Tuesday, March 6, at 7:00 pm (Eastern) for her interview. You can join in the live chatroom or call in with your comments and questions.
