I’m working on a short piece on veterans returning from active duty. Few come back to civilian life unchanged.
It becomes a clash of cultures.
For you veterans — or families of veterans — what was it like readjusting to civilian life? What were the challenges and surprises? Who was closer to you upon your return – families or fellow vets? What do non-vets not know about returning vets that they should know?
