More Than Autographed Footballs
For wounded veterans, the return home can be challenging. Many are too injured to attend a Welcome Home event with their fellow soldiers in recognition for their service. These individuals and their families are faced with months, sometimes years, of rehabilitation and training. Many times, the wounds are invisible and can include:
Traumatic Brain Disorder (TBI)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
