Please note the time change for our live broadcast this week!  The New American Veteran explores transition challenges for veterans leaving active duty, identifies veterans that have become successful in their work and communities after serving, and organizations that provide innovative and effective treatment for conditions effecting veterans - PTSD, homelessness, unemployment, suicide.

Today's guest is Mike Conklin, Sentinals of Freedom. Sentinals of Freedom's mission is to provide life-changing opportunities for men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have suffered severe injuries and need the support of grateful communities to realize their goals and dreams.  Sentinels Of Freedom provides four year "life scholarships" to help vets become self- sufficient. Our vets are finding that once they're released from the hospital, they face the everyday hardships of finding a home, continuing their education, or going to work to support their families. Every American faces the same difficulties, but in the vet's case, the situation is made more difficult because of their sacrifice.
