In this final video of our four part series, we’ll look at how the readjustment to civilian life – which is often so difficult for returning servicemembers – can be made a whole lot easier by knowing beforehand that pace of life back home is considerably slower.
Back home, there is less routine, less fervor – basically, less of everything associated with a tour of duty.
When we consider that servicemembers are so used to a stressful, dynamic environment in which they are saddled with incredible responsibility, it’s perfectly understandable why they might find civilian existence boring.
That’s why both they and their spouse need to realize it will take time to adjust to the safety and calm of family life.
With time, love and support, they’ll be able to reintegrate happily and successfully.
