A recent study by USC provides recommendations for veterans transitioning from active duty to civilian life.
Recently, the Center for Innovation & Research on Veterans & Military Families at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work published the results of an in-depth veteran needs assessment entitled, The State of the American Veteran: The San Francisco Veterans Study.
The study examined many crucial aspects of life for veterans following their active-duty period, including post-service education and financing, housing needs and general health and well-being.
Key findings include:
