Fireworks are typical this time of year.
But for some veterans, the celebration of the very freedom they fought for is stressful and can trigger PTSD.
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Jon Yovanno just wanted to take the dog for a walk Sunday night. He turned right back around when he heard the sounds of the season that haunt him.
He’d like you to consider his story.
Jon Yovanno served 2 back to back tours of duty in the Gulf War.
Fireworks for the 4th, to him sound like Bahrain outside his Brunswick home. “See a flash then hear the boom,” he explains.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder grips him. “It’s just like an anxiety attack. The fireworks, people shooting guns,” says Yovanno.
