Hosted by Alise Cortez, PhD
Military men and women face an enormous challenge transitioning from active duty to the civilian world, often describe it as the hardest thing they’ve ever done. Leaving behind a life and mission governed by purpose and putting their own life on the line in service to it, veterans often find re-entry to civilian life lacking and thus isolate themselves without help and resources. The GallantFew organization exists to help veterans reclaim hope and purpose in their lives as they reintegrate socially and professionally back into the civilian world.
