Jacksonville, FL – May 27, 2014

On Saturday, May 24th, R2 Logistics’ associates participated in the 6th Annual Charity Golf Scramble for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) held by the United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation. The event was held at the Ahwatukee County Club in Phoenix, Arizona.

PTSD, an anxiety disorder, can affect those who personally experience a catastrophe and those who witness it. PTSD is marked by clear biological changes as well as psychological symptoms. More attention has been paid to the mental health of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan than in any previous war. The United States War Veteran’s PTSD Foundation’s mission is to provide comprehensive treatment for combat veterans suffering with PTSD “Free of Charge”.

Participating in the event from R2 Logistics were Brian Parks, Andrew Fleet, Corey Proffitt and Ryan Schmerbeck. Corey Proffitt, Second Sales, said, “The organization’s mission means a lot to me because of the members of my family who have served in the military. PTSD is becoming more and more prevalent in our veterans and this organization does a great job of providing treatment and is a fantastic support network for our nation’s veterans.” Brian Parks, Logistics Sales, also added, “The event was a blast! Not only did the whole thing run smoothly, but the organizers were extremely passionate about their cause. They’ve already helped hundreds of veterans over the past few years in the Phoenix area, and it was great to contribute to the cause.”
