I was married to a Recon Marine from the VietNam war. This series puts in words, heart, feelings and pictures what we lived for 18 yrs. We married because our love for each other and of our faith in Christ was passionate. He came from a broken alcoholic home, I from a Christian home and heritage. We went to counseling, learned communication tools, were selected as examples to our church sharing what we were learning to encourage others to "work through" tough times in marriage and not quit. Suddenly at 9 yrs. of marriage he started to withdraw, little by little and put down his Bible. He started becoming emotionally and mentally unavailable except rage outbursts. He left us, 2 grade school daughters, at 18 yrs. anniv. Within 2 yrs. received a call from a VA hospital, he had clinically died & was revived. VA saw his liver was dying historically had started about same time he started to change & withdraw. God kept me living with him, continuing to grow through the difficulties, while he was dying physically & emotionally inside, but I had no idea those many years but God did, A wise counselor said, "You don't if can or can't learn and do what he knows. If he were a paraplegic he could not walk when told." That stuck with me. After he gained strength , he returned to the area near our/his 2 daughters now young adults. We also became friends. My current husband was confused but knows the Lord works in unexplainable ways so supported the relationship. When he died 2 years later, his eulogy was a testimony to his faith in Christ. The man known as "The Preacher" in VietNam, became wanderer in his little town sharing Jesus with whomever read his Bible under the mountain trees, until his dying day. His Bible was filled with notes made while reading. He was a prime example of what this video series portrays. I know it will help thousands. Get several copies, share with those who have been to war. It's never too late to help the ones we love. This video is a tool that will help accomplish this objective and keep your marriage together, through it all. I've told our story in hind sight. I had no idea what was wrong with my husband in the beginning. He became someone he wasn't eventually, but God hates divorce. God gave me strength to stand firm, hold the ground till the battle was over. We were blessed to be a little part of the end of my husbands story, his did my new husband. Blessings, AE in N. Calif.

God Bless you for putting this DVD together. I have to say neither my husband or myself have dealt with "War" but, you have to know how much this addresses the "War Within" most of us. I grew up with a lot of different issues not limited to physical, sexual, verbal abuse and then in my adulthood continued in the same type of circumstances. As a young child i had learned of God's love and his gift of Jesus to us all. Although i knew of his love and strength he gave me, it wasn't until i began attending Calvary Chapel Santa Cruz and learned of teaching word for word and verse by verse and it's application to every one of us, was i able to stand in His strength against "The War Within". Thanks so much for this DVD. I want to be able to let everyone, no matter of what their circumstances, to see it. Thanks again and God Bless (Posted on 7/8/2010)

Battle fatigue. Shell shock. Those were the terms once given to a group of symptoms that soldiers returning from the front lines commonly experienced. Today those symptoms—depression, anxiety, fits of anger, nightmares, hyper-vigilance, flashbacks, and more—are recognized for what they are: post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

More than half of Vietnam veterans suffer from the devastating effects of PTSD. But there is hope. In The War Within, veterans Phil Downer and Mike Wilkins return to Vietnam to confront their private inner battles. But the war-torn land they remember has changed into a prosperous country whose friendly, warmhearted people extend a healing welcome.

In this moving and powerful 4-part series, Day of Discovery lets you join Phil and Mike in Vietnam with their guide, Tex Stiteler, president of Vietnam Battlefield Tours. Hear the men’s stories and those of their wives. Experience Vietnam as it was in the past and as it is today. And discover, with Phil and Mike, how God fulfills his word: “He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth.” (Psalm 46:9)
