This month’s Mission: Alabama, Who’s responsible for community action and change, is focused on ways the community can build engagement with our Veterans and their families, along with how strengthened engagement is a vital component to a Veteran’s success after transitioning from the service.
Dr. Mallory Lucier-Greer and Dr. David Albright provide evidence-based findings on ways the community can build strengthened support and engagement, but they also connected with Alabama Veterans and their families to hear their thoughts on the topic.
Read the full article to see what suggestions Veterans and their families have for building support and engagement and to learn more on the impact engagement has on a Veteran’s successful transition after the service.

Dr. Mallory Lucier-Greer, associate professor at Auburn University, and Dr. David L. Albright, professor at the University of Alabama, partnered with AL.com to write a monthly column called Mission: Alabama. The monthly column has four primary goals, including…
- bringing awareness to the well-being of Service members, Veterans (SM/Vs), and their families globally and in Alabama,
- dispelling myths that surround military service,
- highlighting resources that are available across our state to serve SM/Vs and their families, and
- advocating for the needs of SM/Vs and their families.
