About: Military-Police-Civilian MilSim Inc
We have been doing research for the past year before forming a 503 (c) 3 Non-Profit Public Charity. Our research shows by replacing a bad experience with a similar good experience the PTSD decreases. This disorder never seems to go away completely. It becomes easier to manage.
Military Veterans that have returned from combat find themselves feeling totally alone with no purpose or life mission. You have importance in in the military. You come back home and have the feeling of not fitting in, missing the comradery of the military. Specially the bonds formed in combat. It is hard to talk to people about what happened to you and/or what you went through. In the military, your job is meaningful and important. We you get back home it is just a job to make money to survive. In today’s world, most coworkers are about themselves with no concern for you. This is totally opposite of the Military.
With the MilSim games these Vets can find some of the things they are missing. People that have PDSD and can talk about it. Can laugh together about MilSim situations that are like what they have been through without getting hurt and support each other. We find that the 15 min breaks between games sometimes turn to 30 min breaks or longer, because of them laughing and talking.
Police Officers that have been in violent situations have the same problems as the Military Veterans, except for comradery is still there. The support for them is better, but the PTSD is still hard for them to deal with. We find by replacing a bad experience with a similar good experience the PTSD decreases, as it does with Military Veterans. The MilSim has the same effect as it does with the Military Veterans.
Civilians that have been in violent situations have the same problems as the Military Veterans. Their family, friends and coworkers can’t understand the feeling of PTSD. Again, MilSim has the same effect as it does on the Military Veterans. With civilians, we provide situational awareness training. This assist in taking away some of the daily fear of “is it going to happen to me again”.
With all people, we find MilSim gives them, a feeling of value, friendship and something to look forward to.
