USO Invisible Wounds-2


Hundreds of thousands of troops are living with post traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and many more will be diagnosed over the next few years. Here, troops share their deeply personal stories and how their conditions have impacted their lives. The USO asks you to become educated and join us in making a difference.
