Today, we’re celebrating our veterans who fought for our rights and freedoms with an episode dedicated to educating veterans and non-veterans about the services and resources available to support them.

In this episode, Peter Raskin speaks with Cathy Battles and Alyssa Hayes* of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. They discuss services that are vital and necessary for those that have given just so much for our country, and share resources to assist veterans in getting the help they need.
