Background:
Military veteran or child of a military veteran

In 2021, the world lost a selfless, kind, and thoughtful son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin, and best friend when Bryent Smothermon passed away.

Born on Flag Day, his love of the military, country, and the sense of comradery he felt led Bryent to have an accomplished career in the military before he left this world too early. 

Bryent, or as his close friends and family would call him B or Smo, was the life of the party. He was a fierce protector of those closest to him, a miracle worker with kids, an animal lover, a gentle soul, and most of all was behind many laughs and happy times. He was always focused on ensuring everyone around him was having a good time and laughing. Bryent had strong values, lifelong friendships, and great memories that were created in his short time on earth. 

To honor his legacy, the Bryent Smothermon PTSD Awareness Scholarship exists to support military veterans and their children and spouses who have suffered from PTSD due to their service. All military vets, military spouses, and children of military vets currently in school are eligible. 

To apply, please write about how your experience with military service-related PTSD has affected you. Please also discuss how you hope to use your experience to help other veterans who are currently suffering from PTSD.
