Becoming a US Military Veteran: Contemporary Perspectives on Reintegration

This research project is a study of the challenges U.S. veterans face in re-integrating back into society after their service. Through interviews, he intends to gather a broad and diverse range of qualitative information on their service and experience of living in the U.S.  Being that the U.S. is a country at war, there is a growing number of military men and women veterans whose lives and perspectives deserve more focus and care upon completion of their duties than society often acknowledges.  The project will encompass topics such as civilian reintegration, domestic resources for PTSD, the effects of war on family and friends, and the ongoing battles for integrity and hope in times of tribulation.  The project’s goal is to distill key lessons and insights about the nature of war and peace from the experiences of those who were directly involved in its pursuit.

Research Coordinator: Pushpa iyer

Researchers: Stephanie Barko and Grace O'Dell
