ABOUT OUR NATION’S VETERANS
Many Veterans suffer from combat-related injuries such as amputation, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), and chronic depression. Due to the issues that arise from coping with mental and physical challenges, some Veterans lose ambition and can easily isolate themselves from society. This behavior can make it very difficult for them to maintain employment.
There are many companies working hard to empower our nations disabled veterans by giving them the opportunity to work with in their disability and lead a normal life.
