Employment, there is still a large amount of the civilian population that look down on vets…take the CNN article that is circulating

Learning how to reconnect with spouses and children.  A spouse who has never been there will never fully understand what it is that their spouse is going through.  Although we try to understand,  we won’t unless we were there.  This can cause a riff in a relationship or marriage,  because the one spouse wants to help and talk about it,  but the other doesn’t know how to and/or would rather shelter the non-deployed spouse from those memories and images.  It’s easier to act as if everything was rainbows and unicorns than seeing the look in their faces when you do open up.

Eliminating the stigma that comes with seeking help for our demons.

Everyone has problems. Many people  try to work things out on their own. For some, their life experiences, memories, actions, regrets are just too much to handle…alone. Does that make these people “damaged?” No. It makes them HUMAN. They’ve shouldered more burdens, seen more chaos and human depravity than the average person could even begin to imagine.
For these people, these doers of deeds and keepers of peace, seeking psychiatric counseling or help is almost a guaranteed social and professional death sentence. Commands will “brand” them. Civilian employers don’t want the “liability” of hiring a mentally scarred warrior and the troops themselves, knowing all of this, will often fail to seek counseling on their own. For 22 of those warriors today and every day, it will be too late.

Troubled VeteranIf you or someone you know is a combat veteran then you know that it isn’t always easy to transition from combat back to civilian life.
