  • Lonestar Veterans association Life Nav Program

    This was a special one hour FYI program focusing on the Lonestar Veterans association Life Nav Program. My guest was Bryan Escobedo with the Lonestar Veterans Association. We talked about the challenges veterans face when trying to navigate life outside the military. Life Nav specially trains mentors with military service, to help veterans dealing with finances, homelessness, education using the GI Bill, Legal issues, relationships and mental health issues. We talked about how Life Nav mentors, using a series of specific questions, help veterans take inventory of their needs, and make a plan using available resources to balance life. We talked about how veterans find themselves adrift after leaving the military, and how isolation and a loss of identity can lead to poor decision making. We talked about the special challenges during the holidays, and how the Life Nav program puts someone in their corner, and forces them to be accountable. We discussed the epidemic of veteran suicide and addiction, how the first two years out of the military can be the most challenging for veterans, and how the military could do more to help prepare service men and women for the transition to civilian life.
