The road to reintegration can be difficult for veterans. It can be hard to find a job and a place to live. And some vets come back with physical and/or emotional wounds that need tending to. In this WFUV/BronxNet Strike a Chord special, we’re delving into the challenges veterans can face as they transition from military to civilian life. And we’ll also be hearing about programs that aim to help veterans with that transition. The Jericho Project runs one those programs. Our guests in this program include Tori Lyon, the Jericho Project’s CEO. We'll also hear from Vu Nguyen who served in the U.S. Navy from 2004 to 2008 and now works with the organization, The Mission Continues, and Josh Chrisman, an Army and Army National Guard Veteran who now works with American Corporate Partners.
