An estimated 1 in 3 combat service members or veterans suffering from invisible wounds of war including TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and PTSD, are also known as combat trauma.
These individuals can experience flashbacks, nightmares, sleeplessness, depression, memory issues, isolation, anxiety, and sudden and unexpected angry outbursts, creating a profound psychological effect on the veteran.
The emotional and behavioral changes associated with combat are devastating not only for the veteran and their family, an effect that continues well beyond the end of their deployment. In fact, the Journey for the family begins the day their veteran returns home.
Our Veteran Caregivers live daily with the consequences of war. Let them know they are not forgotten. Your gift provides programs that support our hidden heroes and their families.
