Find Support

Lastly, one of the best things you can do is look for a veteran support group. If anyone understands what you're going through now, it's going to be other people who have returned and are either currently transitioning or have successfully transitioned into civilian life. It may not even be that difficult to find one, as there are veterans in every corner of the United States.

If you're married, another thing you may want to look into is specialized institutions that help returning veterans adjust to civilian life with their partners. Huff Post highlights how combat veterans are 62% more likely to get divorced due to difficulties in transitioning back into living with their partners. Trust us when we say that seeking help before it gets worse is one of the best decisions that you'll ever make.
