About this document:

Life after the military can pose many challenges to veterans and family members. For some, returning to civilian life may feel like another battle that poses a variety of challenges that must not only be fought, but also understood and accepted in order to be successfully overcome. There are many factors involved in a veteran’s readjustment to civilian life, some of which include:

  • Understanding and abiding by civilian legal standards that may be different from military standards.
  • Coexisting with cultures, values, and norms different from those of the military.
  • Dealing with authority figures.
  • Re-establishing and even re-evaluating relationships with family and friends.
  • Finding a new career path.
  • Pursuing college/university education.
  • Locating a new home.
