Understanding the lived experience of women who serve or have served in the military, will enable a better understanding of their wishes and needs, in what is the largest growing group in militaries across the globe. This article aims to examine literature, which focuses on the lived experiences of women veteran’s lives. Literature was analyzed from two electronic databases, choosing research that focused on women veterans, to develop an understanding of their experiences in the military and veteran communities. We argue that current literature is dominated by the U.S. experience and does not fully explore the global complexity of women veterans, or the difficulties military service causes them.
