Why These Articles Matter

The US military population is unique and members of this group are often underserved. Veterans and active service members need (and these articles offer resources around):
  • Financial Stability: Supporting themselves and their families can be a challenge for military personnel once they leave the service. Education and career are both excellent pathways to financial stability. These articles dive into the nitty gritty of crafting a sustainable, successful academic and/or career path as a military veteran or service member.
  • Understanding and Support: Military veterans and service members greatly benefit from schools and places of employment that understand, address, and embrace military personnel and their unique skills and needs. This suite of articles helps military personnel identify school and career pathways that offer programs, scholarships, colleagues, and other resources to meet their specific needs.
  • Mental Health Resources: Transitioning to college or career post-military can be especially challenging and veterans are at a higher risk than their peers to face mental health challenges including depression, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). According to a study by the Rand Corp., nearly 20% of recent veterans reported to feelings of depression or PTSD. These articles point to a host of mental health resources for veterans.
