Warriors Helping Warriors This Veterans Day

When I left the Army in 2007, I had been away from combat for one year and was in the process of transitioning to life as a student. As ridiculous as this sounds, I was more afraid of going to class than receiving a 0300 Dustoff mission. I was afraid because I didn’t know how to act as a civilian, I was zoning out in class thinking about Iraq, I was surrounded by people who had never experienced combat, and I believed I had lost my identity.

Top 10 Sites For Wounded Warrior Support

The veteran and wounded warrior communities are part of my daily life as a military spouse and member of the Call Dibs team. I’ve had growing concerns and a heightened awareness of rising issues this week which I believe to be a direct result of our nationwide stress and unrest. I witnessed a dire cry for help in a Facebook forum among military veterans this week.
