Just about the time I was working to develop and lobby for the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Bill, which resulted in the creation of the Vet Centers (now numbering over 300 nation-wide), Dr. Charles Figley published his book Stress Disorders among Vietnam Veterans (1978). An internationally recognized Traumatologist, Figley has devoted his career to the study and treatment of trauma. That’s over 35 years of experience, much of it with veterans.
You probably knew him as Maverick or Rockford. He was an icon in film and television. At the National Veterans Foundation we knew him as a supporter who was there for veterans over and over. James Garner served as an honorary board member of the NVF for many years. In 1996 we honored him as our Veteran of the Year. But he wasn’t the kind of man to make a big deal of that. I doubt that there are even a handful of people out there who knew about his support for vets.
