As hard as it is dealing with addiction in New Jersey, it's even harder if you are a returning veteran coming home from across the sea. Many want to crawl into a hiding place and never come out. It's hard for them to deal with life, it's hard for their families to deal with them.

Bill Baurer is a registered nurse and licensed professional counselor. He's part of the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Lejeunne. I asked him to look into the camera and speak to those warriors who are not ready to come out. If you know anyone like that, you've got to show them this video.
