When a vet saves a child, the child saves a vet.
In the final phase of Project 360º veterans find closure through atonement, by helping a child victim of war to rebuild their life. Through this process, vets learn to redefine PTSD. Instead of sedating symptoms with VA prescribed drugs, they learn to accept trauma as a natural state of emotion they should feel, until they choose to take action toward resolving it. In short: when a veteran heals a child, the child heals the veteran.
