Veterans may find remote working as a new career opportunity especially for those with PTSD. Carrie Elk, a therapist, said that “Work from home may be helpful to somebody with PTSD because it eliminates environmental irritants…that can have nothing to do with getting your job done.” The flexibility of working remotely also enables veterans to live near a support system or any specialized medical care they may need.
