Abstract [sv]

Det finns många hinder som veteraner upplever inför återanpassning, något som denna studie ämnar utforska på anledning av begränsad forskning i området. De främsta problemen de fem deltagande veteranerna upplever är oförstående från samhället, bristande stöd från sina närstående, att försvarsmakten inte gör tillräckligt och vården saknar tillräcklig kompetens. Deltagarna uttrycker också tecken på osäkerhet kring den egna identiteten vid hemkomst, att de inte vet vad som förväntas av dem. Samtidigt visar deltagarna omtanke för kamrater även när de själva lidit av substansmissbruk och utfört två suicidförsök. Kontentan kretsar kring att deltagarna vill se mer allmänbildning hos allmänheten för att underlätta återanpassning samt att försvarsmakten utökar sitt ansvar för omhändertagande av veteraner.

Abstract [en]

There are many obstacles that veterans experience when readjusting, something that this study aim to explore due to lacking research within the area. The main problem the five participating veterans experience is lacking understanding from society, lacking support from their closer friends and relatives, that the swedish armed forces don’t do enough and that civilian health care lack satisfactory competence. The participants also express signs of uncertainty around their self-identity when coming home, not knowing what is expected from them. Through all this the participants show compassion and care for comrades even if they themselves have experienced substance abuse and two suicide attempts. In a nutshell the participants would like to see a more educated society in order to ease the readjustment to society and that the swedish armed forces increase their responsibility for taking care about their veterans.
