Fruita, Colo. (KKCO) --- For our wounded warriors, often times their physical injuries are only half of the battle.

Today, at Victory Life Church in Fruita, a brand new tour bus was dedicated to Operation Warrior Reconnect.

The effort helps ease the transition back into civilian life by teaching soldiers how to become public speakers.

"I'm an injured Vietnam Vet, I came home from a war, we were turned away," says operation official, Dave Roever. "This war of freedom and fighting against terror, we're not going to let that happen to these warriors."

Officials say that healing for the soldiers begins with talking about their experiences.
