In Ada County, there are nearly 30,000 veterans. These veterans come from different backgrounds, and each have a unique transition into the civilian workforce.
But some of these veterans also experience struggles that are often misunderstood.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), approximately 11-20 percent of veterans who served in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom will have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in a given year.
