23 January 2012

Operation Warrior Wellness is supported by military leaders, physicians and scientists, and philanthropists
across America.

In his inaugural address to the media during the launch of Operation Warrior Wellness, filmmaker David Lynch, chairman of the David Lynch Foundation, describes the intense suffering experienced by veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and the relief Transcendental Meditation (TM) brings.

Recounting the challenges of soldiers returning home, Mr. Lynch says, ''The soldiers are truly suffering. They come home and no one knows what they have done and what they have experienced—what they've seen. And their lives are a true nightmare.''

Mr. Lynch is optimistic about the benefits that TM offers: ''For sure, it is a stress buster—a traumatic-stress buster. And when these soldiers get this simple, effortless technique, they're going to get their lives back again. It's not hocus pocus.''
