Synopsis: There is a suicide crisis among young veterans but the fix is easy. We need to lead these young men and women down the rehabilitation path and give them a sense of self-worth. Young veterans getting compensation in their 20s or 30s puts restrictions on their lives. There is an enormous push for these young veterans to go down the compensation path which restricts them from doing what everyone else in our society gets to challenge, "growth". Compensation without rehabilitation is a cause of suicide.
