There are more than 20 million veterans in the United States. You may know one. You may be one.
Nov. 11 is the day the nation pays tribute to our veterans, and all week on Take Two, we'll explore the trials and triumphs of our troops here, on the air, on our Facebook page and on Twitter with the hashtag #vetsmatter.
For more on what veterans deal with when they return home, Anthony Hassan spoke with Take Two. He directs the Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families at the University of Southern California.
Hassan says that the Department of Defense is not preparing military personnel well enough for the challenges ahead when they transition from life in the service to civilian life.
