Has Obama helped veterans?

What has changed for the Iraq War veterans since President Obama took office? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with independent journalist Dahr Jamail and two Iraq War veterans. Out of two million U.S. soldiers who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq, one in three may, at some point, develop post-traumatic stress disorder. What resources are there to support the veterans of United States wars? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar. How do they adapt to civilian life?
