What We Understand
Our nation has reached a critical point which must be addressed in a comprehensive, thoughtful and holistic manner. As U.S. military personnel are increasingly withdrawn from Afghanistan, Iraq etc and leave active duty, tens of thousands of our citizens are faced with the challenges of re-integrating into the civilian society in a matter that is effective and empowers them to transition into meaningful civilian employment, communities and family. These brave young men and women deserve our support. Many of these Vets will have be re-deployed multiple times. The experience of war in distant countries always affects participants. Some will return with suffering from injuries, physical or psychological. All will have been separated from family and community for extensive periods. They may also have left former civilian employment behind while in the service. Returning to civilian life and being able to successfully integrate into civilian social, family and economic life presents many challenges. Today’s employers are the first generation to generally have not had any military experience and who are ignorant of what that entails. Sadly, the evidence is growing that a significant number of the homeless in our major cities are former Vets. We must do a better. The approach of SupportVetsNow.org will be deeply spiritual, compassionate and transformationally unique.
