Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury may find support and resources at a Liberty Station event in Point Loma Saturday.

Organizers of the event, Operation Engage America, hope to bring together veterans who need help and their families with the resources available from health and military organizations in San Diego County.

Jean and Howard Somers founded the event after their son Daniel, an Iraq war veteran, committed suicide in 2013 after suffering from PTSD. This is the second year his parents will host the event.

“The aim is to assist those with the problems,” Howard Somers told KPBS Midday Edition on Wednesday. “We know it isn’t just our veterans. We have so many people in our communities who suffer from these issues.”
