  2. Thank you soo much for this story. I serve with the NC VetsCorps, working to help Veterans in transition. It’s heartbreaking. I, too, am a Veteran. I don’t know this pain. I know that we deserve so much more than what we are getting and that’s why I chose, again, to serve. These women are the real sheroes.
