We're all aware that life can be difficult for an active-duty soldier, but extreme difficulties can also pile up in different ways for retired veterans. Many of them struggle to reintegrate into everyday life, and may not have enough money to cover food and housing costs. And that's not even mentioning the challenges they face from physical or mental trauma they've endured. On today's episode, we hear from Dr. Chad Radwan, a veteran-care researcher from the James A. Haley Veteran's Hospital, and his friend David Caras, a veteran who leads support groups and other programs to help men just like him lead healthy lives.
