This year, 49,000 to 69,000 veterans will return from overseas.

When I returned from World War II and Korea, my civilian life didn’t make a lick of sense.

Finally, I sought professional, psychological and psychiatric help, and I have a wonderful life today.

So please encourage today’s returning combat veterans to seek immediate psychological or psychiatric help.

I didn’t, and I had such a miserable life.
