Many of our lives have been touched by trauma and some by its after effects. We find ourselves still struggling with trauma; however the AHERO Foundation helps many wounded Vets from all the branches of service. The AHERO Foundation afforded me the opportunity to talk to other service members dealing with some of the same issues that I am going through. Having that bond and being able to talk to other Veterans has helped me deal with some of the trauma that still haunts me today. Furthermore, because of the AHERO Foundation I am now able to speak about the things that I have seen and some of the trauma that I deal with today and I have never felt better.
