Group Therapy Sessions Help Veterans Ease Back Into Society

Today marks the 220th year, of the Coast Guard—Happy Birthday!  Since its creation on August 4, 1790, the Coast Guard has continued its mission of safeguarding our nation’s shores.

Coast Guard veterans, like many other service men and women protecting our nation, have faced hardships after returning from service.  Ginger Davis, a veteran of the Coast Guard and the Army National Guard, admits that her return to civilian life after deployment to Iraq was not easy.  To cope and ease this transition, she meets with other female veterans for a regular group therapy in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Iraq War Veteran Elizabeth Jackson also attends these group sessions. She shared her biggest concern during her transition: finding a job. She eventually found a job at the local Veterans Affairs Clinic in Daytona Beach and is continuing her employment there.

If you or a military community member is having trouble finding a job or would like to join a veteran support group, the Warrior Gateway can help you. Click here to access the directory and find a local organization that best fits your needs.

Do you have recommendations for service providers in Florida or want to provide feedback on your service provider experience? We want to hear from you—email us at the Warrior Gateway team!
