17 Eye-Opening Secrets From Wounded Veterans

Some veterans argue that many civilians and big companies are "all talk" and they offer support and praise for soldiers just to look good when in reality, veterans are receiving little to no help for the entirety of their recovery. It's no secret that the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has its share of problems and the only thing making matters worse is their lack of expediency in fixing said problems. Returning home isn't always guaranteed to be easy, but how do you cope with PTSD when you've exhausted all your resources?

Never let hate fill your emotions.
