Today is Veteran’s Day in the United States, a national holiday honoring people who served in the military.
Army veteran Steve Prince leads Warriors Set Free, a division of Set Free Ministries. Veteran’s Day events allow Prince and his team to connect with fellow vets.
“A perfect day for me would be going to two or three events and finding one to 50 veterans who are hungry to grow in their faith, heal from the past, and win life’s battles,” Prince says.
Veterans gain crucial skills from their military involvement. Unfortunately, some experiences – especially combat – leave veterans with invisible scars.
As noted here, veteran suicide is 50 percent higher than the nonmilitary population. One in 10 veterans deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan has substance abuse problems.
“Veterans carry the trauma of life we all carry. But on top of that, they’ve volunteered to kill our nation’s enemies; to go to war, risk their life, and maybe come home, maybe not,” Prince says.
