Our veterans have pledged their lives for our freedom, security, and prosperity. Healthy veterans are productive members of society, good employees, and positive role models, but not all of our veterans are healthy.
Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the United States Armed Forces have deployed more than 2.77 million service members to operations around the globe.
More than a third of deployed service members experienced multiple deployments, with over 400,000 deploying more than three times and over 37,000 more than five times.
Some 5,448 were killed in action, 53,283 physically wounded, and several times that number suffered the invisible wounds of post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and the spiritual and psychic trauma of combat.
While most Veterans successfully transition back to civilian life – either on their own, or with some support – many do not.
