We Happy Few

Veterans Issues in a Pandemic

Isolation is an issue I have experienced first-hand as a veteran who lives with depression and PTSD, as a result of military service. I’ve battled that by creating connections through service organizations that help veterans reconnect to their purpose and community. Now all of us find ourselves in a situation where we are isolated. So how have these organizations adjusted their mission of helping and supporting veterans when so many aspects of what they have offered is unavailable in many places.

In this episode, I discuss these issues with the leaders of three veterans’ service groups – Team Rubicon, Continue Mission and Team Red, White and blue. In normal times, these groups provide a lifeline that offers camaraderie and opportunity for renewed purpose. The outbreak of COVID-19 and the associated precautions haven’t changed their missions, but it has changed how they serve veterans and their families.
