Honor For All

Individual Bills, Resolutions and Proclamations 2018

Dr. Ochberg, a graduate of Harvard University and Johns Hopkins University, has a long history of working to both define PTSD and to raise awareness on the subject and possible treatments.

Frank Ochberg, M.D., a psychiatrist, has been a leading mental health authority since the 1960s.

Dr. Ochberg is a founding board member of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies and recipient of their highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award.

He edited the first text on treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and served on the committee that defined PTSD.

Dr. Ochberg has also founded, headed or been part of a number of organizations dealing with PTSD and its treatment, including Gift From Within (founder), Critical Incident Analysis Group CIAG (founder) and The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma (chairman emeritus).

Dr. Ochberg believes in the mission of the Honor for ALL and serves as the organization’s medical advisor.

Kent HallKent joined the Stop the Loss Foundation after hearing about Doug Price’s work with the group and feeling a connection when looking into Dr. Ochberg’s work on PTSD.

Kent was a Sergeant in Phu Bai with 220th RAC in 1969.

Kent has suffered with PTSD for decades, avoiding help as he did not know what was wrong.

He came very close to becoming another suicide statistic, but thanks in part to Doug Price, Tom Mahany and Dr. Frank Ochberg at Honor For All, he came to a better understanding of PTSD and now volunteers to speak to groups about the stigma that too often leads to suicide for our veterans.

Kent hopes to motivate others to understand what Stop the Loss works for: an understanding that PTSD is not a weakness, it’s a wound and help is available for veterans and their families.

The following is a poem written by Kent:


The worst feeling man has ever known,
Are the times when he’s hurt and all alone.
I know that feeling all to well,
On my sinful journey into Hell.
The pain, the struggle, the grief,
The wretched feelings beyond belief,
The scars and wrinkles began to tell,
Of the rough tough road into Hell.
I watched a man today,
Trying hard to find his way,
He staggered, he stumbled, then he fell,
Into the fiery depths of Hell.
I tried so hard not to see,
When I realized that man was me.
My own soul again I would sell,
To keep you my friend out of Hell
There must be a better way
Will I find it somehow, someday?
Can I be the one to dispel,
That all powerful attraction to Hell??
