Description:

As U.S. veterans return from Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflicts, many human service agencies are looking for guidance on how to offer respect and best honor the needs and experiences of our returning service members.  Today’s combat troops are surviving physical wounds that in previous wars would have killed them. Some are suffering from wounds that are invisible but no less devastating. In this unit, you will explore military culture, the combat experience and related stress effects of combat, the transitional life and experiences of the military-affected population, and strategies to assist service members, veterans, and their families.
