MIAMI - According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, up to 20% of Iraqi veterans develop post-traumatic stress disorder.
"I deployed in 2004, to Abu Ghraib prison, Iraq," said Anthony Torres, Army veteran and executive director, writer and performer with Combat Hippies.
"Every time we go in, we shed tears, and those tears are real," said Angel Rodriguez, a Vietnam Veteran, actor and writer with Combat Hippies.
Combat Hippies help veterans through the healing process and encourage others coping with trauma to do the same.
The Combat Hippies are on a national tour and have played cities like Miami, Denver and Milwaukee.
