MAKE THE CONNECTION - Veterans on Taking Steps to Improve Relationships

The experiences of military life can affect veterans in ways that may impact their relationships. In this video, veterans talk about working through problems with their friends and loved ones and finding solutions that benefit everyone.

“As a veteran, I'm a great hire because — you hear this everywhere — we're very hardworking … We're not nine to five workers. I work until I get it done. I will stay there as long as I need to.”

Richard Casper CREATIVETS

Richard Casper wanted to do something to assist other veterans as they transitioned from service to civilian life, so he founded Creativets. With the help of professional singer/songwriters, Richard uses music and arts as a means of therapy for veterans. Creativets allows veterans to travel to Nashville, as an example, where they share their war time experience with talented musicians, who help them tell their story through song.
