Adjusting to post-service life, a significant issue for veterans

by | Sep 19, 2019 | Veterans' Issues |

With the recent anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks that changed the very nature of our country and, indeed, the world, it is important to remember that America has been on a “war footing” for over a decade now. Thousands of young men and women in our country are veterans who have been exposed to the traumatizing nature of war. Adjusting to post-service life for these veterans when their time in the service is over can be a significant issue.

A recent news article pointed out that young veterans, in particular, may have a hard time adjusting to civilian life. According to one recent survey, one-sixth of young veterans described the adjustment to civilian life as “very difficult.” There are a variety of factors that may come into play to make this transition tough.

Paying bills, something that we all struggle with from time to time, seems to be one of the most significant concerns for young veterans. We all have financial difficulties in our lives, but for veterans who are stepping off of their own war footing, basic financial concerns are especially tough. This can be tied to the difficulty some veterans find when they look for employment. Veterans may also feel a disconnect with their family and friends, particularly those who are not service members, according to the recent report.

There are a range of difficulties that veterans in Alabama and throughout the country will likely face as time goes on, especially if America continues on a constant war footing. Veterans who face legal problems should know their options.
