Brendan O'Byrne — I'm Brendan O'Byrne, a former team leader in Battle Company's Second Platoon. I am now out of the Army. If you are interested in contacting anyone in Second Platoon or have general questions about us or about the US military, I'm the person you want to talk to. If you're a soldier - or are married to a soldier - and are having a hard time, I can help. I had a lot of problems adjusting to life after the Army, and I struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder. I'm good now, but I've learned a lot.
Please email me if you or someone close to you is struggling with any of these issues. I'm also trying to coordinate support for our brothers from the battalion who have returned to Afghanistan for another tour. If you are interested in sending care packages to these men, I can help direct your efforts. I look forward to hearing from you.
