Military veterans and their families are largely forgotten in our society as they fall between the cracks of services for help. We do not believe this is intentional. However, most of us do not realize the vast difference between military and civilian life. While some transition very easily, some never do.
Unfortunately, many of our service members either do not qualify for VA benefits, or they don’t know how to navigate the highly complex VA system once released from service. Worse, many of our younger veterans do not see injuries related to their service until much later in life when they have no ability to connect them back to their service.
This reinforces the crucial need to follow up once they are discharged. Sadly, there are little to no services to help in this transition. Military personnel have the highest rates of divorce, unacceptable suicide, and homelessness rates in the country.
