FORT BELVOIR, Va. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The USO opened its largest Warrior and Family Center this month.
The center, located in Fort Belvoir, Virginia, provides a place for wounded service members to work their way back into everyday life.
Colonel Gregory Gadson knows how hard returning home can be, as he lost both legs fighting in Iraq in 2007.
"I didn't know if I was ever going to hold a camera," Col. Gadson said. "That was devastating, honestly."
Soldiers at the center are also battling injuries that can't be seen.
Those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder use yoga, video games, and creative arts programs.
The $12 million facility was completely funded through donations.
