Help for Veterans Behind Bars

Listen Now

Veterans can have a tough time adjusting to civilian life after they've served in the military. Some turn to drugs, and some even end up behind bars. Now, a new program in Colorado Springs helps incarcerated veterans get back on their feet after they've served time. Ryan Warner talks with veteran Fred Hanson, who was released from prison about six months ago. The program helped him find a steady job. Warner also speaks with Rich Lindsey, who runs the program through the non-profit AspenPointe, which is based in the Springs.
