After serving our nation and risking their lives, United States veterans often end their time with the military without the preparation they need to readjust to civilian life. These problems are difficult — if not impossible — to overcome without help and assistance from medical doctors and psychologists in their communities. This is why it’s so essential that veterans receive all the medical care and other veteran’s benefits that they deserve.
Here are a few of the most difficult problems a veteran might face, which can have a serious impact on their ability to find employment and feel psychologically healthy after they have returned from service:
- Loss of self-identity, lack of purpose and a lack of self-worth.
- Difficulty finding new life goals and ambition.
- Finding themselves trying to start over in society while not having a clear view of where they stand.
- Lacking respect and authority in the real world after losing their rank.
- Suffering from the psychological shadow effects of difficult situations. These can result in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, survivor’s guilt and substance abuse.
- Permanent physical and mental injuries, some of which could have related disabilities, scars, disfigurement and amputation that affect the individual’s self-image and ability to hold a normal job.
