Americans are marking the 50th Anniversary of the Start of Major U.S. Combat operations in Vietnam.

Some men and women returning home from combat suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

For Vietnam Veteran Steven Smallwood the fight against PTSD is a fight he knows all too well.

After decades of hardships and run-ins with the law, Smallwood was finally diagnosed with PTSD.

The New Jersey man says he was able to change his life around.

But it wasn't long after Smallwood would have another war to fight.

In August of this year, he suffered a stroke and is learning once again how to regain control of his life.
