More than 2.3 million service members have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan since October 2001. Most Returning Veterans and Active Duty have served numerous tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Repeated returns to the battlefront complicate their ability to integrate back into society. Thousands of Combat Veterans go undiagnosed and undertreated for PTSD by the Military and VA. The current VA regulations and processes are making it nearly impossible for these Soldiers to receive the help they need.
