Transitioning out of the military can be an overwhelming, stressful experience for veterans.  Not only are you likely moving to a new location and providing for your family, but you also may be recovering from a combat situation and re-learning what life is like in the civilian world.  You may need support as you apply for jobs and college and adjust to not wearing the uniform daily.  In addition to these stressors, navigating the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) claims process can be overwhelming.  No one, not even the V.A. – would describe this process as easy.
