Jeanette - Air Force

Jeanette is a United States Air Force Veteran who served during the Vietnam War. Jeanette enjoyed her time in the military, and believes she would have made a career out of it, but wanted to be home with her child. She explained, “I suffered from depression but I never dealt with it. Or I dealt with it, but I dealt with it with alcohol. ‘Cause I was taught, “you don’t have depression, you just, get over it.”  After checking being released from detox, Jeanette came to Veterans Place. She describes Veterans Place as, “another stepping stone of the structure you need, you know. And they help you a whole lot. Whatever you need, that they can accommodate, they can help you with. Which now, I got an apartment now, that I just got the keys”.
