A motorcycle club based out of Minot will be honoring the memory of a guardsman who lost his battle with PTSD in 2007.
Those who served with Joe Biel took some time to share their memories of him with me.
They discussed how they’ve kept his memory alive over the past 14 years and will continue to do so later this month.
In 2010, June 27 became known as National Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day. It’s the same day as the birthday of the late Joe Biel, who served as a Staff Sergeant in the North Dakota Air National Guard. “Joe Biel that I served with over in Iraq is one of my best bests friends and we got home from Iraq in 2006,” said Adam Ritchie.
But for many service members, the war does not end when they return home.
