Veterans helping veterans has become a theme of this project. Recently we visited a horse ranch, where a Vietnam veteran is using equine therapy to treat combat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). He founded the project while recovering from PTSD himself, and inspires participants through his own story of recovery.
We were also granted access to the Department of Veterans Affairs, where we interviewed three experts about veteran employment, PTSD in returning veterans, and veteran homelessness. By recording the stories of those who have survived combat and fought PTSD, in conjunction with the government leaders who are working to make progress on the policy level, we hope to give the community at large the knowledge and resources to hire veterans, understand veterans with PTSD, and help returning veterans reincorporate into civilian life.
