Not everyone is having a joyous holiday.   Some of the challenges facing the troops returning home from the Middle East may surprise you.   The unemployment rate in Oregon is about 12%, but it's much higher for returning vets. “About three times that right now. Especially for those who have been deployed in recent years, so it's tough for them to get that job.” Mike Allegere with the Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs says the other major issue is post traumatic stress: “Anytime you are in or even near a war zone, you don't even have to be taking shots at you.   You can be near the action and still have some sort of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) problem.” Allegere says many times returning vets, both men and women will hide the problem because they want to get back with their families.   His advice is get help before you get your family involved.
