Welcome to our new weekly series, “On Your Side: Veterans Voices”.  Our goal is to help Veterans and their families across Southern California with stories touching on all issues- housing, homelessness, mental health, economy/finding jobs, etc.   We will also highlight Veterans doing good things and any extraordinary stories that get sent our way.
Veteran Robbie Bride served 10 years in the Air Force, spending time in South America, Afghanistan and Iraq. But when he came home, he faced his toughest fight yet, struggling with with post-traumatic stress disorder and self medicating. But he found a savior in Randy Moraitis, the founder of CarePossible, a non-profit with the mission of providing free mental health and addiction care to veterans and low-income families.
