Why don’t veterans speak of their experience? Because of the culture barriers to understanding. Military veterans don’t yet understand (as a population) that they have a different culture than their country, a separate, distinct, yet invisible, identity. The worst part is they are disconnected from it and therefore unable to express it or celebrate it, until they get to a place like the VA where others like them gather.
My goal is to establish veteran communities in the workplace so they can find understanding and serve their company like they served their country.
