In the Corps I was very good a solving problems, but they seemed simpler, even if they involved life and death decisions. Those became easy, actually, but the endless little tasks that you have to do back here at home seem so overwhelming sometimes. It helped to re-learn how to break down big problems into smaller steps.
As part of Prevail's program I got to talk with other guys who have served, and they helped me apply the lessons from the program to my day-to-day life.
I would recommend the Vets Prevail program to any of my buddies that were with me in the desert. It talks about subjects that all Vets can relate to in a way that's clear and easy to understand.
While going through the sessions, I started to feel connected because the narrations [gave the feeling] of someone who's been there and felt the same way...
Small problems become monumental because of neglect. The little goals that you had to accomplish [in the program] helped out a lot.
