Post 65 & HeroZona National Veteran Summit

Herzona was created to empower veterans through entrepreneurship, employment and education. Herozona will be having a three-day National Veteran Summit at the Sheraton Crescent Hotel in Phoenix. During the summit, there will be a Bridge Forum on November 5, where the mental health of first responder veterans will be discussed. A study found that only 50% of returning vets who need mental health treatment get services. At the Bridge Forum, there will be a discussion about helping and hiring those with PTSD. We’ll get more from HeroZona Foundation Founder and U.S. Army Desert Storm Veteran, Alan “AP” Powell and Drew Trojanowski, a veteran with PTSD.
