Anticipating 2012, Engaging Communities

 Anticipating 2012, Engaging Communities 
by Barbara Van Dahlen 
As families make plans to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah and our nation anticipates ringing in the New Year, many individuals are working tirelessly to prepare for the return of our troops from Iraq. While the end of this conflict is cause for celebration, there is a sense of urgency and unease among some at the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, among some in state and local governments, and among some in the nonprofit and the veteran service organization community. While we are all eager to welcome our troops home, we want to ensure that we are able to provide the services and support they may need after the sacrifices they have made during their service to our country.
