While there are many resources available to Veterans transitioning to the private sector, knowing which ones will be the best help for you can be a challenge. From housing to education to advice and counseling, there are plenty of people willing to help along the way.
In this interview, Mary Kate Soliva welcomes Kai Henderson. Kai was working as a police officer in Arkansas, but he wanted to see more of the world. When he made the decision to enlist, he selected a branch of the military that he knew would not send him back to Arkansas: the Navy.
Kai and Mary Kate compare their perspectives on:
• Why transitioning out of the military is so different from leaving a typical job to take on a new role
• How education – just like the military – can often be the best thing to help people get ‘unstuck’ in their lives
• The importance of investing in mental health, and the reality that many people struggle with anxiety and/or depression
