Actor Frankie Muniz raising awareness for PTSD among U.S. veterans

Frankie Muniz is adding his voice in support of our veterans suffering from PTSD.

The former “Malcolm in the Middle” star has teamed up with the Armed Forces Foundation to raise awareness for the disease and other traumatic brain injuries.

“It’s such an important thing. A lot of people can see obviously the physical injures that war causes but people don’t get to see the psychological issues that may happen,” Muniz, 29, told Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson this week from Washington, D.C. “I wanted to just spread that message as best I could.”

Muniz said he was inspired to add his voice to the conversation after meeting U.S. Marine Corps veteran Bobby Grey and his wife earlier this year. Grey is getting help for PTSD after hitting rock bottom and trying to kill himself.

“I don’t people really get to hear these stories that often, and that kind of awareness is super important,” he said. “It’s hard to see the downside or things that happen for someone who is suffering from PTSD.”
