After legal challenges, they found support
Many Veterans transition back to civilian life with few, if any, problems. Others may find the change difficult and may even get into legal trouble related to a variety of issues including anger or drug and alcohol use. For the Veterans in this video, these experiences provided an opportunity to improve. VA support was part of the solution.
Look at the MTC page to see how the VA can help with questions like,
“What should I know about financial or legal issues?”,
“What financial or legal-related issues should I keep an eye out for?” and
“What can I do about financial and legal issues?”

It’s your turn to get your best life back! You EARNED it with your service!
