Every culture shares with its members common values, practices, language and perspectives. These unique features drive the members’ motivation, perception, behavior and expectations. To maximize your work with members of the military and veteran community, it is essential to understand their culture. Attendees will learn about the culture itself, why people join the military, and why they sometimes struggle after military service.

By the end of the session, learners will be able to:
- List reasons why people typically join the military.
- Describe differences in the cultures of the Army, Air Force and Navy.
- Explain common cultural features across all branches and how to tap into these to optimize your work with this community.
