Veteran is Homeless and Unemployed…

Steven PhillipsI was in the Army 10 years. Got out after Iraq. It has been a constant slide til this past year I hit rock bottom. Divorced, homeless and unemployed I tried to commit suicide for the fourth time. I found myself in a veteran’s home where I was finally cared for. Social workers who listened, doctors who cared, I’m not completely home yet, and after my experiences in Iraq, I never will be, but at least I am finally learning to manage with the pain and baggage. Every day I weep, every day I hurt and ache, every day I long for someone to see the potential in me, a classically trained chef who can’t even get a job in fast food. Like I said, I’ll never be who I was, but I can learn to live with who I have become.

  1. Transitioning to Civilian life is not easy. I joined right out of high school and didn’t have to deal with a lot of the stuff my Civilian peers did. The military is hard so it makes sense that they took care of us and let us focus on the mission. The tough part is coming home and integrating into society with the skills that may not transition.

    I was Marine Infantry for 8 years. I have spend hundreds of hours verifying things I was told and navigating the programs offered to veterans. Check out my blog: http://www.millennialveteran.com for tips and advice to successfully transition.
