After legal and financial challenges, they found support

Many Veterans transition back to civilian life with few, if any, problems. Others may find the change difficult and may even get into financial trouble related to a variety of issues including anger or drug and alcohol use. For the Veterans in this video, these experiences provided an opportunity to improve. VA support was part of the solution.
