Know Our Vets

November 11, 2014
By the George W. Bush Institute and Syracuse University's Institute for Veterans and Military Families
Explore the challenges and opportunities for post-9/11 veterans

Over the next five years, more than one million post-9/11 servicemen and women will transition out of the military. Research shows a civilian-military divide: 71% of Americans say they have little understanding of the issues facing post-9/11 veterans. And veterans agree: 84% say that the public has “little awareness” of the issues facing them and their families.

That divide makes transition a challenge for veterans as well as the employers who want to hire them, the universities that want to educate them, and the families and communities that want to reintegrate them.

The Bush Institute is committed to the responsibility we face as a Nation to know and understand our vets.
