Transitioning from service member to civilian is a pivotal point in each airman’s life. In addition to bringing new opportunities, it presents new challenges as well.
As you adjust to civilian life after ending your military career, you may face one or more of the following challenges:
- Feel a sense of discomfort with the less structured daily routine
- Begin to worry about the financial future of you and your family
- Push yourself to a point of perfection where it becomes intrusive in your daily life
- Become quick to anger with those who are more relaxed or less meticulous than
- Feel isolated, or as if you are unable to relate to nonveteran civilians
- Miss the adrenaline, physical demands, or constant motion associated with military operations
- Have trouble sleeping, concentrating, or feel down
Unfortunately, to cope with the major life changes that come along with leaving the military, some former service members resort to unhealthy coping habits.
At Nellis Support Team, we make it our mission to help transitioning service members smoothly move into civilian life. Whether it be helping individuals find support groups, financial consoling, learn healthy coping mechanisms, or even just lending a helping hand, we do everything we can to serve those who have put their lives on the line to serve our country.
