Doctoral dissertation, PhD / Open Access
This study investigated the relationship between volunteering and the military to civilian reintegration process for retired service members. A non-experimental cross sectional design was used with an n of 72. An online survey was utilized to collect data and included demographic information as well as the Satisfaction with Life Scale (Diener et al., 1985) and Military-Civilian Adjustment and Reintegration Measure (Romaniuk & Kidd, 2018). The results have important implications for social work practice, policy, and future research. The findings suggest that volunteering in a formal setting can play a role in easing the reintegration struggles of retired service members and can inform policy initiatives to improve their reintegration experiences. Future research is needed to further explore the relationship between volunteering and military to civilian reintegration.
