question for friend

Hi!

I am not a military mom, but have a friend whose brother has come back from Iraq and is having problems with PTSD. I am not sure how to help him deal with his brother. He was wondering if there are any books to read that would help family members of military with PTSD. Do you all know of any books like that? Or of any support groups online or otherwise for military family members?

Thanks for any help you can give. I do not have military in my family and am not sure of how to help him. Thank you for the sacrifices you and your husbands make for this country!!

Here are a few links that might be a good place to start. I don't have any specific books that I would recommend, but I'm sure a simple google search would find quite a few that pertain to this subject.
