I enjoyed the AP (Associated Press) article on how “A Christmas Story” has become a part of our deeply-rooted Christmas tradition (“‘A Christmas Story’ at 30: Now part of the family,” AFN, Dec. 4).

I’ve been very active my entire life and believe that keeping active into your 40s, 50s and beyond is critically important to ensure a happy and healthy life.

As a mental health therapist it has been my privilege to work with some veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars. Of course, from the news media, TV, and Internet, we know of their sacrifices and their willingness to risk their lives for their country. Since 9/11 hundreds of thousands have served, and many have paid with their lives or with serious life altering injuries. Other wounds equally serious, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), are less visible. About 20 percent of all those who have served in combat suffer from these disorders. PTSD and/or TBI can result in acute anxiety, depression, and/or cognitive impairment, which can impede work and the formation of healthy relationships that most of us take for granted.
