Veterans Deck Cover Card. Iwo Jima memorial. Veterans

Challenges from enlistment through discharge and beyond. In service to our country, veterans face life-altering challenges that are often difficult for civilians to understand.  Connecting…communicating becomes difficult. Resilience on the battlefield and resilience at home may pull from the same set of Skills & Attitudes though applied very differently given the milieu.

Review the challenges in this deck alone, with a trusted friend, family member, a therapist or in small groups of veterans. Practice applying the Skills & Attitudes of resilience to the challenges of civilian life. Recognize the role environmental factors play in the selection and application of those Skills & Attitudes.
