Holidays can be a difficult time for many Veterans. The flurry of expectations many women feel during holidays can cause stress or feelings of loneliness. This is especially true for Veterans who may be separated from friends and family due to distance or COVID-19.
Many Veterans also miss the camaraderie and kinship they felt during service. Or they may find it difficult to relate to those outside the military.
Creating a new community of Veterans or reconnecting with former service members can help ward off loneliness, stress and anxiety, and provide a sense of purpose.
