Local News

A U.S. Army veteran and poet is hoping to help local veterans who are suffering from PTSD.

Brian Turner served in iraq in the U.S. Army and is the author of a memoir and two poetry collections. His work has been published in the New York Times and National Geographic. He’ll be at the SLEP Student Center at Penn State Altoona, Thursday night at 7.

The event is designed to bring about awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, how to get help and how to recognize symptoms in others.
