They called it a hard, hard landing…
A helicopter crash left John with chronic back pain and a traumatic brain injury. Swamped with painful memories, at first he turned to drinking to manage his depression. His commitment to taking care of his children gave him a reason to stop drinking and to reach out for help from VA.
Check out the MTC page to see how the VA can help with answers to questions like:
“What is chronic pain?” and
“If I’m experiencing chronic pain, what can I do about it right away?”
