Veteran's Story

Returning home from war can be an overwhelming and challenging experience for many United States veterans. The transition back to civilian life can be especially difficult for those struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and drug addiction. These veterans face the added burden of trying to adjust to social living, which can include finding a job, building relationships, and readjusting to daily life. The trauma of combat can manifest in a myriad of ways, including anxiety, depression, and isolation, making it difficult to cope with the stress of everyday life. Unfortunately, many veterans turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with these struggles, leading to addiction and further complications. It is important that we provide resources and support for our veterans to help them overcome these challenges and lead fulfilling lives upon their return home.

A Veteran's Story


United States veterans often require assistance after their service due to a variety of factors. Many have experienced physical and mental health issues as a result of their time in service, which can make it difficult to reintegrate into civilian life and find and maintain employment. In addition, transitioning to civilian life can be a challenging adjustment, and veterans may struggle with finding housing, social support networks, and access to resources like healthcare and education. Some veterans also face financial challenges, including poverty and homelessness, which can be exacerbated by difficulties in accessing government benefits and resources. Given these challenges, many veterans rely on assistance and support from organizations and government agencies to access the resources they need to thrive after their service.
