The process of re-integrating back into the civilian life can prove challenging for some veterans. Approximately 45 percent of soldiers who return home from deployment are marred, to varying degrees, from the rigors of combat. For one group of vets, a CrossFit facility in Middleton has become a sanctuary, of sorts, where they work together to mend both the body and the mind. Intense workouts act as powerful stress relievers and provide them with a rush of endorphins. And the camaraderie among members offers them a sense of support and belonging. In many ways, they've become a new band of brothers. Watch as they explain how this unconventional approach to healing has helped them physically, mentally, and emotionally.
