PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Former Pittsburgh Steeler, and Vietnam Veteran Rocky Bleier wants to help bring awareness to the wounded warriors project.
He joined NewsRadio 1020’s Rob Pratte to talk about the project, and the struggles veterans deal with after war.
Bleier talked with Pratte about his experience after Vietnam as a wounded warrior.
He said he was wounded in his left thigh during a fire fight near Hiep Duc, Vietnam.
He believes the Wounded Warrior Project is “a way to reach out to these soldiers’ home fronts and raise the awareness of the troubles that veterans struggle with daily.”
This project “gives the public the perception of the invisible wounds that soldiers carry with them after war, such as post traumatic stress disorder,” according to Bleier.
