TRANSITIONING TO CIVILIAN LIFE
Veterans often face challenges transitioning from military to civilian life. This topic is discussed on this month's Serving Those Who Served, a television show about Mountain State veterans that appears on the West Virginia Library Commission's television network. Host Billy Wayne Bailey, the West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance's Deputy Secretary, discusses transition challenges with West Virginia University-Parkersburg Veterans Advocate Shawn Healey and Ritchie County veteran Zach Linville.
