"Real Warriors" Urge Fellow Vets To Ask For Help
People trained to grab weapons and go into battle are some of the toughest people on the planet. But they can also be among the people most reluctant to ask for help when they are having trouble adjusting to civilian life.
The Defense Department set up the Real Warriors Campaign to encourage veterans to seek help when they need it, to not suffer PTSD or any other mental condition in silence.
Capt. Cassandra Ross of the Montana Air National Guard did suffer in silence before seeking help. She shares her story in a visit that includes Dr. Nick Polizzi, the Governmental Action Officer for Real Warriors.
