When service members leave the military and become veterans, one of the things they often miss most is the camaraderie that they had with the people they served with.
These episodes of Drive On Podcast cover camaraderie for veterans and where you can find the same like-minded people that you served with.
A few quick ideas to find similar camaraderie as they had while serving in the military include:
- Veteran organizations, such as VFW, American Legion, DAV, or others.
- Volunteer at a local VA hospital.
- Find groups of veterans who participate in an activity you enjoy doing.
