Veterans Today- Monday, September 26th, 2011
Imagine a successful military career that met every expectation you’d dreamed of when you were growing up. You learned honor, discipline, loyalty, career skills, and self-confidence, and now feel you are ready to go out into civilian life and conquer the world.
The minute you drive through the base gates for the last time, you, like most other veterans will begin to have second thoughts…the economy, unemployment, the flashbacks to combat action, and having your fellow brothers in arms in which to confide, will all be behind you. It can be a scary feeling.
