CHICAGO (WLS) -- Many of our service members returning from the battlefront have to live with invisible wounds. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects all branches of our military. Many of our veterans are either afraid or unaware of getting help. But there are ways to adjust back into civilian life. McHenry VFW Post 4600 wants to remove the stigma of PTSD. They are hosting a benefit dinner on September 16, 2017 from 5-11 p.m.. Dwane Lungren from the McHenry VFW Post 4600 joined ABC 7 to talk about the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and what we can all do to help.
