For many of our brave servicemen and women, transitioning home is challenging. Imagine the strain of leaving family and friends for months on end in an unfamiliar country, enduring battle and seeing your friends fall to the enemy.

You've lost a sense of serving a greater mission, and working alongside men and women you would trust your life with.
