Vietnam Veteran Bob Culver

Bob Culver

One of the men that I had the honor to meet in San Francisco, during the film project was Bob Culver.

Bob had a long journey of trauma even before joining the military had suffered from PTSD for decades.

Bob has been an inspiration in his dedication to move forward with tapping, no matter what life threw at him.


After returning from San Francisco, Bob continued to work as an institutional chef, until his apartment caught fire and the house burned down to the ground, with all his belongings.

Thanks to the generosity of caring Veterans and people that knew him through the video, we could gather enough finances for Bob to help him relocate to North Carolina, where his daughter and grandchild live.

About ten months later, the job situation forced him to take a short term job in Massachusetts, then he decided to return to North Carolina to be closer to his family and the new grandchild. Bob has now retired in Pennsylvania.

Bob does not have an easy life, but EFT has helped him tremendously to stay focused and calm, no matter what life throws at him.

He strongly believes that every day tapping is crucial for long term success, and he is an amazing inspiration for many others who share military trauma and live with the consequences very day.

Bob’s message is:” Try it once and see for yourself”.

He will gladly connect with Veterans and other people who would like to learn more about EFT.

Bob can be reached as “Bob Culver” via facebook, or leave a comment below.

  1. Dear Mr. Culver, I’d love to talk/correspond with you about your experience with EFT. I am a retired professor from Duke University (Professor Emeritus, Psychology, Neuroscience & Psychiatry); I am a friend/colleague fro Dr. Larry Burk, also formerly from Duke, with whom you once briefly spoke about your beneficial experience with EFT for PTSD. I have been working for the past 6 months as an inpatient psychiatrist at a VAH in Texas. VAs vary greatly in how open they are to EFT or any somewhat newer treatment approach. Unfortunately, this particular VAH is very \"Fear-based\" and is exceedingly scared/skeptical about even the usual well-proven treatments (such as EMDR) that are listed as part of treatment guidelines! I was reprimanded several months ago for sending the \"Operation Emotional Freedom\" DVD, as a friendly, \"FYI\" to the local outpatient PTSD treatment program, e.g., for possible staff educational purposes; someone there was (supposedly) so enraged that he stormed into my bosses office to complain. Volunteers are now specifically prohibited from teaching EFT to Vets here. More recently, an official memo was sent to all inpatient psychiatrists here stating that we are prohibited from making referrals even for the usual outpatient \"psychological\" treatments are considered proven for PTSD (CBT, exposure). The stated rationale is that (supposedly) someone over there will do needed referrals, but that simply is NOT happening. Of course this is probably a gate-keeping maneuver (to limit access to costly, scarce resources (it appears that they used to merely routinely cancel such referrals). However, the mandatory prohibition puts a conscientious physician in a bind: we are medically-legal liable for failures to refer! The situation is only getting worse, as this VAs budget has been severely cut. A reasonable person might think that perhaps alternative, cost-effective possibilities, that may do more good than harm — such as EFT, should be now be considered here — yet that is specifically prohibited. I may lose my job over this, but I am so alarmed/distressed/conflicted over the situation, that I have decided to go above my immediate bosses head, to the Chief of Staff. In order to do so, I\’d love to be able to refer to your experience specifically (this can be cited as a personal communication). Thus, I am asking that you please contact me at
