So, this is where I get serious.
As a former member of the U.S. Armed Forces, I’m honored to have my country as best I could. Anyone who enlisted, or commissioned, for a significant amount of time and has not incurred any disabilities is either very lucky, or unnecessarily hiding this fact. For the rest of us, we rely on either the Department of Veteran Affairs, or programs like the Wounded Warrior Project. We don’t have much control over the funding of, and aid from the VA, but we do have the ability to aid the WWP, and I would like to do my part to promote these programs and educate our greater community as to what they do and how they can help. I’ll be the first one to admit that, even though I know of these programs, I’m really not that educated about them. Once I carve out some time in my schedule to do my research, attend sponsored events and meet key figures of these organizations, I will post my reports here. In the meantime, check out my think-piece on professional burn-out in the military.
Thank you for your attention and support.
