dc.description.abstract Due to the nature of military culture and combat exposure homeless veterans experience a unique set of obstacles when reintegrating into society. A historical analysis was used, to test the theory that Iraq and Afghanistan veterans face inter-related problems with regards to mental disorders and societal functioning. As expected, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance use were reported within the homeless veteran population. The experience of Military Sexual Trauma has been found to be a cause of PTSD. These disorders have an effect on the employment possibilities and potential for crime in homeless veterans. en_US
