A Brooklyn-based, two-time Purple Heart recipient, has spent his life helping other veterans.

Danny Friedman, 72, was drafted in 1967 to fight in Vietnam with great hope, pride, and honor to serve his country. After returning home in 1969, images of war triggered post-traumatic stress disorder.

Friedman says he made sense of helping other veterans deal with their own war trauma. He worked for New York as a veterans advisor and for the US Department of Labor for Veterans Affairs.

He says on Memorial Day, consider reaching out to a veteran and thanking him for his service.
