Transitioning back into civilian life after being in the military can be difficult. That’s why a national non-profit is helping out.
The Putnam family is a part of the Operation Homefront program, which helps military members and their families transition back into everyday life. It’s allowed them to live rent free and save up money for their own house back in Maine. Living in the Operation Homefront village, families also get a chance to meet others in the same situation.
“They really care about the veterans and seeing them acclimate to civilian life. It’s overwhelming how much they care,” said Heather Putnam.
Operation Homefront has two other transitional housing villages, one in San Diego, Ca. and one in San Antonio, Tx.
