I can speak first hand about how many of my brothers and sisters are struggling with civilian life after returning home from deployments. As a Marine, it's a part of our culture to protect those around us, so it's hard to take that step to recognize that help is needed and then actually go and seek help. I have had to, and I hope that this page provides some valuable resources for you or someone you know to do the same.
