Track Palin apparently never served even one day in combat, yet according to his mom, Sarah Palin, he suffers from PTSD. That's what the former Alaska governor said while endoring Donald Trump last week.

It was while addressing the crowd of Trump supporters that she brought up her son Track Palin. She claimed he had PTSD and then went on to blame the president.

"It starts from the top, the question though it comes from our own president," she said. "When they have to look at him and wonder, do you know what we go through, do you know what we're trying to do to secure America and to secure the freedoms that have been bequeathed us?"

Track Palin's public records show he spent only one year in Iraq, under the George W. Bush administration. He didn't spend even a minute in combat.

An anonymous fellow soldier, set on debunking Sarah Palin's claims that Track Palin has PTSD, said the following.

“Speaking as a combat vet who literally slept in the same barracks as Track Palin, his mother is wrong and her son is not a victim," he said.

Track Palin was arrested on January 18 and charged with domestic violence, according to the Wasilla, Alaska police department.
