Shootout for Veterans

GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – A group of veterans in the Upstate is working to help their brothers and sisters in arms cope with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Tim Wiles, a former infantryman and chaplain, started When Life Sucks to help veterans cope with PTSD through counseling and stress management. The group uses stress monitors to help identify things that could trigger a veteran’s PTSD.

The treatment is done by veterans for veterans, to help create a sense of empathy during the sessions. Counseling and treatment isn’t cheap, however.

When Life Sucks is hosting a shootout tournament at Sharpshooters starting Monday. The qualifying rounds run through November 11, and the top 30 shooters will compete in the final round on November 19.

All of the money raised from the tournament is going directly towards When Life Sucks, and the treatment programs they provide for veterans.
