If you or someone you know served in the military or has been deployed to combat, you know that it isn’t always easy to transition from combat back to civilian life. Your experiences as a veteran may make give you a different perspective than the people around you. And trauma related to war and combat can lead to post-traumatic stress, depression and hopelessness.
We owe a great deal to the heroes who have sacrificed so much for us.
