An event at the Women's Center for Advancement was held Wednesday morning, not just to honor veterans, but the families who stand behind them.

An American flag was raised to honor men and women in this country's military efforts.

The WCA stresses speaking up about service hardships, weather it be physical or mental.

They say PTSD is a real problem that can often be overlooked and under-treated.

"They're still dealing with things that people didn't come back with before. Not all veterans have those things to deal with, but for those who do-that flag means a whole lot to me," said Sharon Robino West, Peer Advocate for the WCA.

The WCA offers help for military families and those dealing with PTSD and encourages anyone who needs help to call.
