Our service men and women are being deployed.  Upon their return home they have been experiencing several types of mishaps from emotional to physical injuries.  The emotions that have been the most prevalent for the veterans are Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

It has been stated that since the summer the suicide rates has climbed; suicides outpace war deaths for troops.  Coming home for the veterans can create several types of emotions from unsettling to comforting.  Regardless of the emotions expressed all require various levels of adjustments.

All is not lost there has been an array of service men and women successfully employed throughout the world.  America’s Heroes at Work is a product of the U.S. Department of Labor designed to address the challenges of our employed veterans that are experiencing and living with TBI and PTSD.  The organization has highlighted several real-life success stories of partnerships between veterans like Thomas Green, Richard Nero and Hector Medina and employers ranging from Department of Veterans Affairs, Booz Allen & Hamilton, Northrop Grumman and Department of Justice to National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

Despite their illnesses and/or injuries the veterans has been operating and managing their careers productively.  They are well on the road to success but they will continually need adequate health care to maintain stability and productivity.  Welcome home.  We appreciate all the risks that you and your family have taken and what you have done for the Country.
