War veterans are not getting the support that they need when they return home from war. I believe that there should be a mandatory check up as soon as the soldier gets home.

There are families that are being torn apart because of PTSD. 62% of war veterans' marriages end up in a divorce. That shows what going to war does to a family.

There is multiple suicides occurring because of this mental health issue.... all because they are not getting the help that they need. Between 1999 and 2010 there was roughly 22 suicides per day due to PTSD

There needs to be more therapy options for war veterans. The returning men and women only have a few options on what they want to do to help their mental illness that occurred when they are fighting overseas for their country to have freedom.

27% of men and women who come home from overseas end up with both PTSD and alcohol addiction.

People with PTSD relive traumatic events that occurred when they were overseas. The only way to help with reliving these situations is to find proper help, and that does not seem like it is happening enough.

We should implement a new tax.... one that helps war veterans receive more help. Wouldn't you want your money going to something that will make a change! The taxes do not have to be very much, it only has to be a little bit because every bit helps!

That is a challenging achievement, but an easier one is being supportive to war veterans and be there for them if they need someone to talk to! 

Why don't we help the people who fought for our freedom? They need help and everyone can help them.
