NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Americans are in debt to our veterans and want to give back to those who served.

In some cases, it’s as simple as giving a helping hand. In others, it’s working to help them overcome battles they continue to fight in civilian life.

All day Thursday, News 2 is looking at how we can help pay veterans across Middle Tennessee back for their service.

Our stories include helping vets who are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder, jobs and education opportunities, and how businesses and the community are helping in ways large and small.

Help us salute our veterans and learn more about how we can help them.
