A veteran is a person who has had long service or experience in a particular occupation or field. A military veteran is a person who has served and is no longer serving in the military. Helping Veterans Transition is a challenge; however, several support organizations can help.
Support organizations that can help are AMVETS, American Wants You, Veterans Support Organization (VSO), VetJobs, and USO. Veterans can help themselves by walking or jogging, eating healthy meals regularly, getting a good night’s sleep, and practicing relaxation and stress management techniques. Common challenges most veterans face are reconnecting with family, joining or creating a community, preparing to enter the workforce, returning to a job, and adjusting to providing necessities like food and housing.
To conclude, talk to a veteran’s transition organization representative soon and find out he or she can help you adjust.
