What needs of veterans are not being addressed in America right now?


My answer to What needs of veterans are not being addressed in America right now?

Answer by Ken Larson:

There are the usual regular needs such as the bottleneck at the VA for return veterans processing caused by the lack of records integration between the Armed Forces and the Veterans Administration.

There is a lack of understanding among employers and regarding the transitions a veteran must make to rejoin the work force after having been in the military Aside from the legal and moral obligations to employ returning veterans, there is a third, vital challenge in the employment transition equation: understanding the vast difference between the military and civilian work environments. The expectations of both parties must be carefully assessed and communicated with realistic processes for effective transition from military to civilian employment by the veteran.
