    Feb 25, 2009

    Soldiers live by plans. When they enter the Army, Reserve or National Guard, Soldiers choose a military occupational specialty, and are given a plan that sets out a course of training and experience. When they are qualified in their MOS, they are assigned to their unit, given job responsibilities and provided a plan that defines their military career. When they deploy to a wartime environment, Soldiers are given a plan that outlines their duties, assigns them to a team and battle buddy, and gives them a timetable for their return. It is on their return from a deployment when planning - with the details of what they may experience emotionally and psychologically, what they can do to help themselves recover, how they can regain the life they left at home -- often falls short of what a Soldier needs to reintegrate back into a normal military routine, family life and society as a whole.
