Equating PTSD with aggressive behavior is not only inaccurate but it perpetuates a stigma that can prevent Servicemembers and Veterans from seeking help.
The VA disability compensation claims backlog has been reduced to 344,000 pending claims. This is down 44% from a high of 611,000 claims in March 2013.
Research shows that Veterans graduate at significantly higher rates than other nontraditional students, while performing at a level comparable to traditional students.
In March the unemployment rate for all Veterans was 6.0%, which was lower than the national average of 6.7%. The rate for Post-9/11 Veterans was 6.9%.
