All Volunteer Force: From Military to Civilian Service, published by Civic Enterprises, is an investigative report detailing veterans' reemergence into society and how civic participation can shape the transition from the battlefield to civilian life. Focused on veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), All Volunteer Force concludes that veterans involved in community service and other forms of civic participation are more successful in finding job prospects, engaging in family life and overcoming physical and mental health challenges.

Based on the first-ever nationally representative survey of OIF/OEF veterans, this report seeks to elevate the voice of today's veterans and profiles the experiences of four of today's vets. This report was funded by the Case Foundation and Target.

As we consider the role that unolds beoreus, we remember with humble gratitude thosebrave Americans who at this very hour patrolthe ar-o deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us, just as the allenheroes who lie in Arlington whisper through theages. We honor them not only because they arethe guardians o our liberty, but because they embody the spirit o service; a willingness to fndmeaning in something greater than themselves.”
