serves those who serve

Families of veterans are unique. With only 1% of the U.S. population having served in the military during the period of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars over the past 10 years, most families are unaware of the unique problems confronting veteran families. Issues such as unemployment, housing, and other economic issues are common to families in general; veteran families are often confronted with the artifacts of war – such as the visible and invisible wounds of war.

Veterans returning home from war often display a numerous characteristics that appear peculiar to family members. Some of those characteristics include self-isolation – where the veteran prefers substantial time alone, hyper vigilance – when the veteran seems to react instantaneously to sudden surprises, aggravation – particularly when the veteran is confronted with questions about war, increased alcohol consumption – often, the veteran prefers to drink alcohol alone, and numerous other characteristics that seem very different when considering the behavior of the veteran prior to entering the military or going to war. The explanation for this difference is rather simple. The veteran is not the same person who was in the family before he or she joined the military and went to war.

In a recent study of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans conducted by William Brown (Founder, The Bunker Project), which included in-depth interviews of veterans in 16 states, a number of veterans expressed their concerns relative to their families after discharge.
