As roughly 2.5 million service members transition out of the military, readjusting to civilian life can present significant stress.

For many veterans, the transition is filled with complicated and confusing challenges. Some feel isolated and alone. Some struggle to find or hold a job. Many say they feel like they just don’t fit in. Finding and connecting with the right support and services can be overwhelming.

And that’s a challenge for all of us.

To learn more about this issue and how you can help, watch Veterans Coming Home: Ask  an Arizona  Expert
