Dear service members,
     We would like to thank you again for your service to our country and remind you that we stand ready to assist you.
     Returning from a deployment and re-uniting with family is a joyous occasion for many soldiers. However, it can also be stressful to meet the challenges of blending back into the normal routines of work and family life.  Readjustment concerns of returning soldiers may include: difficulty sleeping, troubling dreams, anger and anxiety, difficult memories, and excessive use of alcohol or drugs.  (Read the rest of the Welcome Home Letter here.)
