Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a national holiday designated to honor those who have served in the military and particularly those who lost their lives in service. I believe that an important part of honoring people who join the military service is providing them with the necessary care and support when they return home. Too often, returning veterans struggle with both physical injuries and mental health issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which can have physical, emotional, and cognitive effects, are increasingly common too among veterans returning from combat. Unfortunately not all veterans receive the care they need for a variety of reasons.
This Memorial Day, consider making a donation to one of these non-profit organizations that works to provide health care services to veterans:
