After serving in Iraq, Omar felt tense and anxious. He still had a go-go-go mentality, and he quickly became angry and impatient. After he had back surgery, he reached out to VA. He participated in vocational rehabilitation and returned to school. Through therapy, Omar found ways to process his experiences, control his reactions, and move forward.
No matter what you may be experiencing, there is support for getting your life on a better track. Many, many Veterans have found the strength to reach out and make the connection.Locate VA Resources
