This report looks at the unique needs of veterans in Illinois and the Chicago region who have returned to the U.S. since 2001. New veterans face a challenging context upon return: an economy with few job openings, systems of care that have grown accustomed to serving older and predominantly male veterans, and personal resistance to seeking help. These veterans need to have sufficient supports available to them in order to prevent the long-term negative impacts that many previous veteran cohorts have suffered. This report provides a demographic snapshot of new veterans and explains what services they need.
