Since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, transition programs for post-9/11 veterans that leverage military experience, leadership skills, and service orientation have grown rapidly. The Mission Continues, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, challenges post-9/11 veterans to continue to serve their country and communities after their military service has ended. The aim of this study is to assess the perceived personal, social, and family impacts of participating in The Mission Continues Fellowship Program, focusing on the second cohort of post-9/11 fellows enrolled in the program.
