Our returning military endemically suffer from the trauma of war. The Veterans Administration must and will make available to vets and active military a full range of therapies which will allow them to recover and move on to real engagement with life along with their families and communities.
Both in past wars and today veterans are suffering from conditions which make reentry into life problematical, challenging their physical and emotional health and marginalizing them economically. While these conditions, Post Traumatic Brain /disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury and Concussive Brain Injury, known during past wars they were not effectively treated, resulting in many veterans finding themselves facing enormous problems which resulted in broken marriages, loss of jobs, health problems, drug and alcoholism, and suicide. We will change this.
The cost of treating for these problems is far less than the cost exacted from veterans, and from America, if we fail to ensure veterans get what is needed.
