Why social work?
I want to work with the veterans and military population because I feel that they are neglected a lot of the time and aren’t helped with their needs, especially when coming back to civilization after being on duty for x amount of time. I have family members who have served and are currently serving and have had issues that were neglected or they need help with certain things and I want to be in a position to assist them as well as others. Also, I feel it is necessary for me to also give back in this capacity because the VA helps fund my schooling and I want to do a service and help them back.
