Iraq War Veteran to Speak About PTSD at Kent State University at Stark

More and more active American veterans come home with not only physical wounds from serving their country. One in six soldiers returns from Iraq or Afghanistan with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which not only affects them, but their family members, co-workers and others in their community. Many veterans are helped by knowing they are not alone in this struggle.
