For some, especially for those who have served or who are part of a military family, basic information about our military and its way of life is familiar. For many, especially civilians with no direct ties to our US Military or direct interest in military life and history, this basic information is not something they have previously encountered in a significant and meaningful way. This workshop is designed to give a basic understand of our US Military as a first, important step in becoming culturally aware. Information about our branches of service, the process of becoming service member/military family member, and reintegration back to civilian society are the basic building blocks for those who have not served to use as a frame of reference and understanding when interacting with service members, veterans, and military families in healthcare organizations. This is a vital step in honoring the lives and experiences of those who have been drafted or have volunteered to carry the burden of our National defense, and a vital step toward providing competent and informed care.
