Volume 2 of AJO is a special issue focused on facilitating reintegration for military service personnel, veterans, and their families. The articles in this issue highlight how the complexities of the reintegration process create challenges for diverse care providers and community services and the need for systematic implementation and evaluation of programs and services to build much needed evidence to support program development and improvement and to make relevant changes in practice and policy.
