US Marine Corps Veteran Jabari Jones standing by the door of his mother’s house where he grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana. Jones is 31-years-old and left the Marine Corps in May of 2005. He served two tours in Iraq as a Corporal and was a landing support specialist.  “When I got out of the army I was suffering from PTSD, and my family told me to get help. The problem with the VA is that they make you wait. I didn’t want to take medication and it took time before I got counseling. When I finally got counseling I started getting better.” Today Jabari tries to meditate regularly and is more aware of what triggers his PTSD. Hot days remind him of Iraq and on those days he tells his co-workers that he is feeling “uncomfortable” and he says that they respect that. Malin Fezehai
