A potential new mission & purpose for war veterans

Recently our club has taken an interest in the plight and issues being faced by Swedish veterans who have returned home after serving in war zones around the world over the last 10-15 years and some of the organisations in Sweden who try to help and support them.

We read a lot about the problems American veterans in particular face after coming home and leaving military service and it is not pleasant reading.  Well you might be surprised to learn that many Swedish veterans face similar issues and problems.

We found the following interesting Tedtalk recently about an organisation in the USA that believe they have found a new, fulfilling mission for military service veterans. Could something be done along similar lines here in Sweden?
