Adjusting to life after serving overseas can be difficult as it is, then add going back to school to that list. A new clinic at Madison College's Truax Campus is helping ease the veterans' transition.

Randy Bouzek served overseas for several years. When he got back, he realized he was missing one thing, a college degree. He's now a student at Madison College. He says "VA Connections" will help him as well as other vets adjust to school and succeed at getting their education. The clinic will offer therapy, crisis management and health care.

The vets will then be able to focus on their futures and bring their leadership and experiences to the college to share with classmates.

There were at least 800 veterans enrolled at Madison College last year.
