Female vets get help adjusting to civilian life

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS (KXAS) -

A non-profit group is helping female veterans adjust back to civilian life.

"Grace After Fire" outreach coordinator Michelle Rosales-Kneubuhl, a Marine, says the group helps veterans "know that there's someone else out there that they can call and talk to and, in confidence, be able to share what it is that they're going through and realize they're not alone."

According to the program, eight out of 10 female veterans report needing support for post-traumatic stress disorder, injuries or military sexual assault.

Groups such as Grace After Fire blend the military approach with reality.

"It's a mission -- you're going to have to go through some stuff, and you're going to have to get to a certain point where it's going to be OK," Rosales-Kneubuhl said.
