Challenges That Soldiers Face After Retirement
One of theÂ problems our veterans faceÂ is the mental health issue after retiring from the service. The estimated number of cases of veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD has been placed at 13 to 30 percent of the total veteran population.
Aside from mental health concerns, one out of 10 veterans deployed in either Iraq or Afghanistan has been diagnosed with substance abuse.
These factors greatly affect their lives. Some veterans who experienced these challenges have sadly resorted to suicide.
Tens of thousands of veterans are having a hard time getting employed after retirement. There are multiple factors behind this.
Bridging Gap in Government Service to Veterans
One of the factors affecting their employment is disability. The estimated number of disabled veterans in the United States has been placed at 3.6 million.
This problem becomes a factor to another issue that some veterans face: homelessness. The estimated rate of homeless veterans has been placed at 11 percent of the countryâ€™s homeless population. Records show that 92 percent of homeless veterans are male while 8 percent are female. The countryâ€™s homeless people are said to be living on the streets for a span of four years at a minimum, but unassisted veterans are said to live on the streets for a minimum of six years.
Homelessness is just one of the indications of poverty. It has been estimated that more than 1.4 million veterans are living below the poverty line. Another 1.4 million are just above the line.Â Of veterans between the ages of 18 and 34, 12.5 percent are said to be living in poverty, according to aÂ U.S. Senate report.
These issues cannot be addressed alone by the U.S. government. That is why our Brentwood, California car donations program continues to generate funds to support our retired troops and their families. We aim to bridge the gap in government service and provide support to unassisted veterans.
Join us in helping them now by donating to Brentwood, California car donations for veterans.
