Since October 2001, approximately 1.64 million military service members have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in support of the war on terrorism. The impacts of these deployments have taken a toll on our military, their families and the communities in which they live. Over one-third of those serving are struggling with unspoken wounds of war, including social communication deficits. This Capstone Project includes the creation and implementation of a survey to gain an idea of the social communication needs of returning service members and veterans. The goal of this Capstone Project is to create a business plan for a Restorative Social Communication Program that supports military service members and veterans in reintegrating and reconnecting with society.
