plans designed for veterans

Military veterans can face many challenges as they transition from a war zone back to civilian life; these challenges can include the possibility of suffering from PTSD. Indiana Fun World health, educational, training and other supportive programs can play a significant role in helping veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and many other problems. PTSD is a type of anxiety disorder that can occur after one has seen or experienced a traumatic event that involved the threat of injury or death. PTSD can affect people of all ages. It can follow a natural disaster such as a flood or fire, or events such as: assault, domestic abuse, a stay in prison, rape, terrorism, and of course, war/combat, which is the type of event that we will look at.

 

Outreach & Hiring

There are American veterans who live among us. Yet, most of the time we don’t even know it. Unless they are family members, we tend not to notice them


Back to Normal Transition program is designed to make your post-military adjustment easier. Transitioning Service members are welcome to take part in the program including Guard and Reserve members.

Indiana Fun World will help our veterans to make their transition a success by offering many services and programs that will help our heroes on the right track of their transition into the civilian world.
