In a row of beige cubicles in a suburban office park, a hulking former Army sergeant hunched over his phone next to a photo taken in Afghanistan, a few days before he was hurt by a roadside bomb. On the other end of the line was a combat veteran, also wounded in Afghanistan, who had called a peer hotline, Vets4Warriors, that connects troops and former service members seeking help with veterans. Since 2011, Vets4Warriors has fielded more than 130,000 calls from military personnel stationed around the world.
