To those who have never served, the transition from military to civilian life may look easy, but Air Force Veteran Nicalayae Buford would be the first to tell you it’s not. Adjusting to a life without structure, the camaraderie of a team and a daily mission left Buford feeling adrift and would eventually lead to her becoming homeless. With the support of the Overton Brooks VA Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana, and particularly her Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) case manager Mia Whiteside, Buford now lives in a sdiv home where she’s raising her three children.
