Returning home from a combat zone can present its own set of challenges. A veteran may wrestle with a mix of feelings—relief and joy perhaps tinged with guilt at having survived when others didn’t. Some might feel that they should still be with buddies who remain overseas. These emotions can be exacerbated when wounds, physical or mental, are involved. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have seen an increase in cases of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. Military health-care providers and families are still learning new methods for dealing with these terrible byproducts of war.
