According to American Community Survey there are 18 million Veterans in the United States. Throughout the years Veterans have played a significant role in making America the country that it is today. Their honorable sacrifice does not come without its difficult recovery. Because of what combat and service is like, veterans in turn face very distinctive health issues related to their military service and are more likely to suffer from trauma-related injuries, substance abuse, and mental health disorders than people who have never served in the armed forces.
