Better Serving Our Female Veterans
with Katy Neas of Easter Seals
"Women veterans are some of our strongest heroes coming back from their service. But when they come back, they're often having difficulty translating the skills they acquired in the military to a civilian life. They also have children, and many of them are struggling to find a job and care for their children at the same time."
As many American troops return from active duty, the transition to civilian life at home can be especially difficult, and especially challenging for female veterans. There are just over two million female veterans in the United States. How are systems designed to help veterans specifically addressing with women's needs? A conversation with Katy Beh Neas, Executive Vice President for Public Affairs at Easter Seals.
