Meet Barron Hall, a Vietnam War veteran who has been working with Street Sense since 2005. His passion is educating those on the struggle that most veterans face upon returning to out country and the lack of support that is readily available for them. His story is truly incredible and his perseverance to break his dependence on self-medication (the only option to treat his PTSD after returning to the U.S. at the age of 20 – already a veteran of war) and begin reconnecting with his family is so admirable. Barron says that Street Sense has given him his dignity back and allowed him the time and space to express himself and speak on behalf of the other veterans in our country that are suffering. He will be writing an article and sharing photos with us about the VA Medical Center (http://www.washingtondc.va.gov/)
