Saratoga Springs, Utah – Monday is Memorial Day, a day to remember those veterans who have died while serving in the U-S military. It is estimated that more than 4-thousand have been killed while in Iraq and Afghanistan. While others return home alive, they are wounded from combat, not just with physical scars, but with deep psychological ones. These veterans live with what is known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
