Working for the vets is rewarding in many ways. There is a strong culture to promote healthy living lifestyles for the veteran,their families,service provider and vendors.

Report answer

You have to understand the culture of the Veterans. Their lives that they once had have bee stripped away from them. So if you put your feet into their shoes you can begin to live the life they are living. It is not easy to adjust right off from a battlefield to a secure homeland with economic conditions.

Incompetent leadership and management! Promoting is based on favoritism not performance because any hint of intelligence gets you targeted by supervisors as a threat.
