In Vietnam, Richard saw intense combat, including the death of a fellow soldier. When he came home, he buried his memories. He started drinking and using drugs to numb his pain. He turned to crime to fund his habit. During time in prison, he connected to VA. He got out and received treatment for PTSD. VA care has kept Richard on the right path.
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
