This app takes the form of a gamified virtual chat that is intended to help with veteran reintegration into social society. Together Strong specifically helps people who are struggling with friendships outside of the military.

Veteran reintegration can be particularly difficult when vets have spent years outside of civilian society. They often find the way they're used to communicating and building friendships with other soldiers is different, especially when it comes to personal problems, grief, stress and work issues.

The free online app is available at the App Store as well as Google Play. Through conversational roleplay scenarios, players have to navigate successfully to move on to the next level by choosing the correct actions and comments to make. They also receive personalized feedback based on their responses.
