You've probably heard of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, but it's now called Post-Traumatic Stress Injury in Michigan.

Michigan is the first state to adopt a resolution changing the name of the condition affecting thousands, including members of the military.

Veterans held a rally in Lansing Wednesday morning to raise awareness about the change. One Vietnam veteran says he hopes it leads to more people getting help.

"Just like with anything else, the longer you wait to start getting help, the harder it is to get it out," said Kent Hall, who served in Vietnam. "The first step is just talking about it, and most veterans won't talk about it unless they're dealing with another vet who's been there." is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
