Topic: Challenges facing veterans in their 40s

How Topic Discussed: Western Pennsylvania --- and the Mon Valley in particular --- sends a high percentage of people to the military. Why is military service so ingrained in the work ethic of the Pittsburgh region? What challenges do veterans face when they return home? How do veterans receive assistance with service-related conditions --- including PTSD --- and non-service related conditions, such as securing affordable housing and launching non-military careers?
