Military life comes with unique struggles that can have lasting effects on veterans and their families.

Common Issues Military Veterans and Families Face

  • Veterans: Combat injuries, addictions to narcotics, alcoholism, difficulties getting reacclimated to the civilian world, mental issues like anxiety and PTSD.
