Delaney to visit TRADOC schools, centers for PTSD outreach sessions

Scout Reports

Bob Delaney has been dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder since his work as an undercover officer infiltrating the Mafia while serving as a New Jersey State Trooper. Also a retired National Basketball Association referee who officiated more than 1,700 regular season games, 160 playoff contests, and nine finals, Delaney is sponsored by the ”NBA Cares” program to serve as an ambassador in a PTSD outreach program and share with audiences his insights on how he has dealt with the condition for so many years.

He will visit every school and center in U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command for two days to hold outreach sessions with Soldiers and their families. He has helped many to understand and identify symptoms of PTSD, and the impact it has on the individual and its ripple effect on family and friends.

Delaney will be at Fort Huachuca on Monday and Tuesday. He will visit the Noncommissioned Officer Academy, Directorate of Emergency Services, the 111th Military Intelligence Brigade and the 40th Expeditionary Signal Battalion during his visit to the installation.

Delaney has presented before members of law enforcement, the military, firefighters and emergency service workers and their families for the past three decades, and was embedded in units in Iraq and Afghanistan during 2009, 2010 and 2010. He has counseled Wounded Warriors at Landstuhl Hospital in Germany, and military posts throughout the U.S. and Europe.

He was decorated with the U.S. Army Outstanding Civilian Service Medal by TRADOC Commanding General, Gen. Robert Cone, when he was the commander of III Corps for his support to Soldiers and families at Fort Hood following the tragic shootings of Nov. 5, 2009. He has received the President’s Volunteer Service Award from President Obama for his ongoing PTSD awareness and education work.
