For Iraq and Afghanistan service members, coming home can be a long process filled with physical, psychological, social and spiritual roadblocks to a new stability in the civilian world. A common place where needs are often expressed is within faith-based communities and so it is important that congregations and other organizations understand the specific culture and needs of this population.
