Everyday our Military is going out and risking their lives to bring us where we are now with freedom. Veterans are very important because when they retire from being a formal soldier of the military they go through many things.
One of the major effects veterans or any soldier is physical injuries. they get many wounds from bombs,bullets and exc. that is another reason why veterans are so important.
another really big effect on veterans is PTSD or Post-Traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is a condition that firefighters and veterans usually get. It basically give you a very visual flashback to something that was very traumatizing.
