Marine in the Iraq War

VLAC’s client served as a Marine in the Iraq War.  After returning home he began to suffer from the effects of severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Due to this, the Department of Veterans Affairs awarded him a service connected disability rating of just 30%.  However, this percentage equated to only $400.00 per month, and the impact of his PTSD was so severe that it prevented the veteran from obtaining gainful employment.
