Collection launched: 28 Jan 2022
The articles submitted and selected for the special collection, presented here, create new and necessary conversations in veterans studies regarding veteran health care, and contribute to existing conversations on identity and representation. The contributing authors and I hope readers will see our effort to intellectually support and sustain the veterans studies community. May the authors’ ideas encourage you to form new or rekindle old connections—be they intellectual or social. Truly, may this special collection foster reconnection—to both community and to your own curiosity and creativity. May this work inspire and compel you to find ways to contribute to the veterans studies community (e.g., submitting an article, becoming a reviewer or copyeditor, promoting the journal, financially supporting the journal or the Veterans Studies Association).
