Missouri Veterans Endeavor Grantee Spotlight
After months, and even years, of service to their country, veterans return home to family and civilian life; for some, the transition can be difficult. Many return with physical scars, and almost a quarter return with emotional and mental scars as well. In deployment, soldiers experience very long periods of extended absence from comfort, security, families, and breaks. When it comes time to return home, these veterans need well-deserved time to adjust and adapt once again to both civilian life and family life. Even if away for a couple of months, family life can become unfamiliar to the veteran. Everyone matures naturally, but independent of each other, and the veteran has to reintegrate to the family’s life, and vice versa. In some cases, as a result of combat stress, brain injuries from IEDs, repeated deployments, and rising use of drugs and alcohol, soldiers return from service to find themselves homeless. Self-respect is diminished, with the loss of a home, job, or family. So where can these veterans go who return to a world they no longer know and to a family who no longer recognizes them?
