PTSD continues to trouble LI's war veterans

Deer Park resident Fred Kempski, 88, served in the Army during World War II, where he saw his share of combat. After the war, he returned home without any physical injuries, but soon began to experience the psychological wounds associated with post-traumatic stress disorder. Since then, Kempski was treated for depression with electroconvulsive therapy and drugs. Today, his symptoms have subsided for the most part, but Kempski is still receiving regular psychotherapy.
