(KCEN) -- Soldiers who have deployed know how hard transitioning to civilian life can be.
But former and current military members are heading to a Temple Airsoft Course to simulate combat for fun.
This form of combat is helping soldiers adjust to everyday life.
Many soldiers have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but today they are shipping out to Temple.
Almost two hundred soldiers come once a month to the Temple Airsoft Field.
And believe it or not for those who may suffer from PTSD like Eric Galloway the sound of an air soft gun is therapeutic.
"For me, it's being a kid again, no negative consequences, no negative outcome," Galloway says. "The hardest part about the military wasn't going to war, it was going home."
Dave Demorrow opened the Temple Airsoft Field three years ago where the atmosphere is one of comradery.
According to Demorrow, "This gives a chance for people who've never been in the military, to see what kind of sacrifices they make."
Temple's Airsoft Field is one of the biggest in the state. Hundreds of current military and ex-military will come out.
By the looks of things it's taken pretty seriously.
For Eric, airsoft captures the best parts of combat and eliminates the worst.
"Everyone walks away alive. To me that was one of the biggest things. That I get to reconnect what I was as a kid. Just playing Army."
Allowing the heart of a soldier to survive even when safe at home.
