Veterans often face a nearly unique set of challenges as a result of their service, and these challenges can be difficult to discuss with those who have not had a similar background. These challenges range from issues like how to reintegrate into civil society; to dealing with medical issues arising from their service; to learning about how to find and take advantage of the resources available to veterans. Having a community of fellow veterans with which to discuss their issues, experiences and perspectives is invaluable for dealing with these – and other – challenges.
However, despite the presence of a variety of veterans’ organizations which can help provide such a community, many veterans aren’t able to find a supportive community which meets their needs. As part of our mission to provide support to veterans, Veterans Anonymous is creating an online community for veterans, to ensure that all veterans have a community to provide them with a social support network which can help them deal with the challenges and questions they face.
