Meet Rami Yulzari, a veteran of the first Lebanon War.
As all Israelis, he was inducted into the army immediately after high school. Like many, he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome as a result.

Rami joins VOI’s Molly Livingstone in-studio to share his personal story of discovering he had PTSD, and how he created his own running group to help others like him survive with the support of “Natal: Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War.” listen now
