Number of student veterans suffering from PTSD rises in U.S.



By Tanner Osborne

As united States soldiers return from the long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the number of student veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder is rising across the country.

During his time in the military, Hendricks served 11 years as a combat correspondent, or military public relations officer, and he learned a whole arsenal of skills he thinks should be applicable to his education and the OU community as a whole, he said.
