Daniel Hutchison Helps Returning Veterans

Name: Daniel Hutchison

What is your job? Director of Ohio Combat Veterans

What social causes are most important to you? Helping our returning veterans transition to civilian life after they have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I founded Ohio Combat Veterans because I see so many of our returning men and women struggle with their transition home after combat. I know it is difficult as I served in Iraq in 2006 and coming home is such a difficult period.

Why do you have a passion for this one in particular, is there a personal tie? A very personal tie. I struggled with PTSD when I first returned from combat and I know that it is hell. That is why I am so passionate to help my brothers and sisters.
