Combining research with narrative, this book exposes common threads of lived experience and reviews the latest data on military women and their healthy reintegration into civilian society. Female veterans share their stories of seeking to be seen in a culture where they don't quite fit and their struggles to find community and friendship. Some were the first women in US history to fight during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. How and where, for example, does a female combat Marine find her tribe once she leaves the service? Through stories of these courageous yet entirely human women, readers learn about the experiences of a new and often forgotten generation of veterans; the challenges surrounding family and career choices that millions of American women face; and ultimately, about sacrifice, resiliency, loss, and love. For readers interested in female veterans and women's health/mental health issues, and psychology, health, and social work researchers, students, and professionals.
