FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Mark Creech is fighting a war right here at home, one that sends the American soldier into a personal battle every day - yet one of which most are unaware.

When he returned to Frankfort, Kentucky from a 15-month deployment to Iraq in 2006, he brought with him the memories of a combat zone.

Several years and one Afghanistan tour later, Creech still faces a daily battle with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Now, a group of Frankfort citizens is working to help combat veterans escape their invisible enemy. They plan to donate around 500 yard signs to combat veterans in this area, meant to inform and educate their neighbors about PTSD.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website, about 20 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have PTSD.
