Palm Springs Air Museum

Palm Springs Air Museum… Quote from this website…

“The Palm Springs Air Museum is home to one of the world’s largest collections of flyable WWII aircraft; and our air-conditioned hangars have no ropes to keep you from interacting with our exhibits. Our extensive library and our crew of trained volunteers can provide you details on the aircraft and a sense of the experience of flying them.”

Please support my mission of helping families who suffer from PTSD and moral injury…order my book, Reconciliation: A Son’s Story.  Click and order paperback or download Kindle version. Thank you! 

SUNDAY 3 NOV– 1 PM –  Reconciliation: A Son’s Story Author, Steve Sparks will share his military family’s post WWII experience.   Steve’s father, a US Navy veteran, served in extended combat duty during all of WWII, including later deployment during the Korean War. This was a time during the 1950’s & 60’s when there was little or no understanding of the painful symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or treatment strategies for warriors and the children and families affected in life after war.  Steve’s topic includes both military and 1st responder families who live and cope with PTSD.   The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion as time permits.

I am honored to have the opportunity to speak at the Palm Springs Air Museum on November 3rd at 1pm.  I will talk about “Surviving and Thriving” as a military child growing up in a post WWII and Korean War home.  We survivors of traumatic events in life learn to live with the symptoms of PTSD and more importantly “thrive” while on a lifelong journey of healing.  Research and writing my book, Reconciliation: A Son’s Story along with the joy of writing a blog, Families Living with PTSD and Moral Injury, and speaking, provides me with the personal rewards of making a difference in the lives of others…  I love to engage with the audience in a most informal way to learn from each other about our own life experiences.  I can also speak as a US Navy veteran serving during the Vietnam era, and from a long career in the corporate world, including community service during these later years in retirement.

I want to extend my appreciation and thanks to the Palm Springs Air Museum for this opportunity to share my story with the goal of helping children and families become more aware of living and coping with PTSD.
