Hieromonk Joshua speaks with Silouan Green, a former U.S. Marine Corps Fighter Pilot, who was involved in a tragic fighter jet crash and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Silouan recounts his battles with PTSD, discusses how he recovered from PTSD, how he developed his new PTSD Program, and how he renewed his faith in God and found his way to the Eastern Orthodox Church.
"I want to thank you for your ministry. I have been listening to AFR for several years now, but it means more to me this year than ever. I am working in the Middle East as part of a multinational peacekeeping force, but I am the only Orthodox Christian on camp. The priests and ministers available to me are Catholic and Protestant. While good men, they can't offer me the Sacraments or church experience I need. When I am most lonely and homesick, I can boot up my laptop and log in to AFR, and my whole outlook is changed in an instant. Being able to hear the words and sounds of my faith, especially here, means more to me than you can ever know. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And God bless you all!"
