A Christian ministry is helping American war veterans recover from the traumas of conflict.

‘Warriors Set Free’ director Steve Prince says the aim is to build faith to heal from the past and win life’s battles.

He told Mission Network News that his team sees many veterans who’ve never heard the Gospel, so they get to share it and see them accept Christ.

Mr Prince says while most veterans transition successfully into civilian life, others struggle.

The veteran suicide rate is 50% higher than the national average.

As a veteran-to-veteran ministry, the ‘Warriors Set Free’ team offers unspoken understanding.

That’s because it includes veterans with a brotherhood based on the service they’ve been through.

The director says just a one-day session has been able to give hope, purpose and strength.
