Roadtrip Nation: The Next Mission

About This Episode


Military personnel face untold challenges during service. But one of the most formidable missions is the transition back to civilian life.

Experience the trials and triumphs of post-military transition through the stories of Helen, Sam, and Bernard — three transitioning service members who set off on a road trip across the country to discover their purpose in the civilian world. As they interview fellow veterans who’ve found fulfilling work beyond service, the team learns that the skills cultivated in the military aren’t limited to the battlefield; they can be applied to any number of exciting careers. Combat might be behind them, but a new mission emerges: the fight to build a life of purpose begins in which their heads and hearts will be their greatest weapons.
