Veterans Coming Home | Mike Lake: Give Us A Chance


Hampton Roads is home to over 217,000 veterans and each year 13,000 military personnel leave their respective branches of service and make the transition to civilian life. Though those numbers seem big, today, less than 1% of Americans have served, which is significantly down from 17% who served in World War II, and fewer and fewer civilians personally know someone in the military. What has evolved are often stereotypes of veterans as heroes or individuals struggling with critical issues, such as PTSD. This has led to a greater disconnect between the military and civilians, known as the military-civilian divide.
