MIAMI (Map, News) - Derek Graner can scan a crowd of veterans and pick out those needing help.
The former Army sergeant developed post traumatic stress disorder in Iraq and knows the signs - the withdrawal, the restlessness, the distrust.
"Sometimes there is a certain look in their eye," he said.
Graner is one of 100 former service members hired nationally by the Department of Veterans Affairs as outreach specialists to help get Iraq and Afghanistan veterans into programs aimed at easing their transition back to civilian life.
