ALBANY, N.Y. -- A new exhibit debuts at the Albany Stratton VA Medical Center, showing how many veterans face the biggest challenges off the battlefield. The "Second Front, Mission Change" exhibit showcases stories told by soldiers and surviving family members of soldiers.

Veterans often face emotional trauma when they return from service, something the VA helps our troops contend with.

"Provides information about experiences of Vets and their coming home and their ability to reintegrate, or not, and the results and dangers they face during things such as road rage and their treatment with substance abuse," said Linda Weiss, Albany Stratton VA Medical Center Director.

The exhibit will be on display at the Stratton VA Medical Center through Friday, January 18th.
