Upon leaving military service, U.S. Navy veteran Andi Ward found herself lost and on a downward spiral that included alcohol, drugs and despair.
But at 33, she's turned her life around with the help of organizations serving veterans, such as West Hollywood-based Merging Player & Vets. The program offers peer-on-peer support to remind military veterans that they are never alone, organizer said.
More information on Merging Vets & Players is available online.
