Being a member of the National Guard or a Reservist gives you opportunities and perspectives unique from your civilian and full-time, active duty peers. While some members of the National Guard and Reservists easily balance their roles in the military and as civilians, others may find it challenging to switch between active duty and Veteran status. Some members of the National Guard and Reservists feel as though they do not have the same support system as their active duty counterparts. This may make it hard to deal with issues related to deployment, reintegration, or other areas of your life. Some members of the National Guard and Reservists may deal with financial stress, the pressure of reemployment, and issues with family and relationships. But there is support available, and every day National Guard members and Reservists connect with resources and support to help them manage challenges and improve their lives.
