For professionals who are working with military service members, veterans, and their families, it is important to understand the military culture. This brief training will provide an overview of the military, understanding acronyms and terminology, military ranks, military values, military engagements, current missions and issues facing the military, recognizing barriers to seeking help, knowledge of support and resources available, and recognizing the unique needs of each individual— the service member, the veteran, the military spouse, the military child… Understanding the military populations you work with starts with understanding the culture.
