Mission America: Straight Talk about Military Transition
Since the days of Homer, warriors have faced an epic battle for which many were ill prepared: coming home after a life of military service. Many veterans say that transition to civilian life is the biggest obstacle they’ve ever faced, with emotional, relational and financial challenges they could never have imagined. What if it didn’t have to be this way?
Mission America: Straight Talk about Military Transition is a no B.S. look at the realities of military transition and an eye-opening perspective to help soldiers transition to civilian life with success and honor, in a manner befitting their sacrifice and service.
Transition is one of the greatest challenges facing military service today.
And while most Americans are conditioned to believe that veterans should be treated as damaged goods, the majority are some of the highest performing leaders on the planet, capable of solving some of worst problems it faces.
We need these people, these warriors, back in the game and back to doing what they do best: leading. But it takes much more than a job to make this happen. It has to happen at a community level, with warriors and civilians working side by side.
Simply put, when civilians and veterans connect, communities win.
