18 Important Resources Every Military Veteran Should Know

Resources For Veterans

The other day I was talking with my wife about trying out something new. We both decided to try mountain climbing.

However, we are both inexperienced, and no idea when it came to knowing what to do, where to go and how to do it.

In that instance we knew that we need a professional to teach us.

Someone who could teach us the ropes about mountain climbing, and give us some helpful tips to turn the idea into something we could be passionate about.

Luckily, my wife has a cousin who is a professional mountain climber, and he pointed us to a guide he wrote about mountain climbing.

The guide was very informative, and included all sorts of information about equipments, preparations for a climb, the best mountains to climb in the state, technique and more.

It’s also the same when it comes to the life of a Veteran, you need resources or guide to help you.

There are only little news websites focused towards military personnel and Veterans.

Not a bit.

Well, I decided to create my own guide, and post it here for everyone to use and share.
