For 18 years we are raised in society, we become one piece in our communities puzzle. When we join the military that puzzle piece is ripped out and put into a new puzzle where it’s reshaped or reformed, if we deploy to combat it’s reshaped even further. When we return home that puzzle pieces is once again ripped out and tried to be placed back into it’s original space, not only does it no longer fit in, the gap in societies puzzle is no longer there. Our family, friends, and our community have learned how to live without us.
23rd Veteran teaches the community how to re-open that puzzle, allowing an environment more friendly for veteran's transition to a civilian life.
