What to do after retirement? Challenges for an Ex-service man.


At very young age they face the challenges that really test every ounce of their  physical strength and mental determination. It takes Days and night, sweat and blood to become soldier and then they are posted at most difficult locations  facing the enemy.

After facing all these challenges, when they retire they face another big challenge. A challenge to resettle as a civilian.  Believe me it is not as easy as it may seem. It requires counselling and specialized  training to make them able to adopt life as civilian and finding a job for meeting the financial needs of their family.
