Medal Of Honor Recipient Dakota Meyer To Headline Brave B.A.S.H.

TAMPA, FL. – For his bravery in Afghanistan, Dakota Meyer became the first living U.S. Marine to be awarded a Medal of Honor in 41 years.

Yet after returning to civilian life, Meyer found he could not put the trauma of combat behind him. He was haunted by flashbacks, irritable, anxious, quick to anger. Like so many veterans, Meyer was suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

“PTSD affects every aspect of your life.  It’s so important for people to know that PTSD can be treated. There are treatments out there that work, like Accelerated Resolution Therapy,” says Kelly Bustin, the executive director of the Tampa-based nonprofit ART International. “If you have PTSD, you can get better.”

Meyer will be speaking at Brave B.A.S.H., an annual gala for ART International, which works to increase access to Accelerated Resolution Therapy or ART. ART International has helped thousands of veterans, civilians, first responders and other trauma survivors receive this life-changing treatment. 

This year’s Brave B.A.S.H. will take place on Friday, Nov. 19 at the Orlo. Tickets are available at artherapyinternational.com/bravebash/.

The event will be emceed by Rebekah Gregory, a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing, who lost a leg as a result of her injuries. 

Dakota Meyer is a veteran of the War in Afghanistan. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Battle of Ganjgal on September 8, 2009, in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. He is a frequent contributor on FOX News.

He has spoken at length about the effect that PTSD has had on his life, including ending his marriage to Bristol Palin, daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
