KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Thousands of people witnessed a wonderful moment Sunday night at Union Station, when Afghanistan veteran Brandon Garrison received keys to a new home.

When he returned from battle, Garrison struggled with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. He decided to help veterans with similar struggles. He's heavily involved in the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Because of his commitment and service, Bank of America and Nehemiah Community Reinvestment Fund chose Garrison to receive a home in Kansas City, Kan.

Garrison saw his new home, which he will share with his fiance, Monday morning.

Tune to FOX 4 News at 5 p.m. for his reaction.

    “22 veterans commit suicide every day. 46 attempt suicide.”

    A new anonymous online computer therapy program for PTSD at PTSDSTRESS.COM reduces the symptoms of PTSD.

    The user follows an easy-to-use program on their home computer. Military and non-military men and women have used it for over 5 years. Results are at http://www.PTSDSTRESS.com.

    The program is anonymous and requires no registration. The cost is $10 per session and accepts credit cards but does not require a cardholder name for further confidentiality. Military and non-military men and women users including victims of trauma like sexual assault report results on PTSDSTRESS.COM home page.

    This supposed vet is not suffering from PTSD but mental illness. Further research should be done into his background. I am a former employer and I can attest to the fact that he was never in a combat situation and has suffered from mental illness his entire life. Please do the real veterans a favor mr garrison and step down from this podium you preach from
