With less than 7% of our country having served in uniform, most Americans do not understand military life and culture. In order to provide our Veterans with the support, care, and education they deserve, civilians need training on military cultural competency.

We reached out to service members of all branches and ranks - active duty, reservists, retired veterans - as well as their families to find answers to the question: "What is the one thing you would want a civilian to know about you?

Our findings led the development of our movement:

  • 1 Mission: Military Cultural Competency 
  • 5 Questions You Should Ask a Veteran
  • 15 Things a Veteran Wants You to Know

COURSE OVERVIEW

What Veterans Want You to Know was a course created to educate anyone who works with, lives with, or cares for veterans. PsychArmor asked hundreds of Veterans what they want civilian employers, health care providers, and therapist to know about them. There were hundreds of comments and patterns. We took those comments and broke it down into 15 things Veterans want civilians to know. This course will teach you 5 questions you should always ask veterans, 1 question you should never ask veterans, and 15 facts that will make your more culturally competent.
