7 Hobbies for Veterans

For military veterans, service will always be at their heart. After the responsibility and honor of serving your country, civilian life is never going to be the same. It’s no surprise if you want to continue exercising your skills and discipline in a hobby, that gives you an escape from what may be a more mundane or slower pace of daily life. Hobbies are a really productive use of your downtime and having something that you can put your energies into will greatly enrich your quality of life.

As a military vet, you will know how to safely use a firearm, and hunting is a great way to exercise those skills (and wear your camo). In the US, licensed hunters enjoy high-quality game from a range of animals including white-tailed deer, turkey, feral hogs, and doves.


Woodturning is an all-American craft that is used to create beautiful objects and utensils. If you are looking for a relaxing hobby at an easy pace you cannot do better!


Line Dancing

If you are looking for a hobby that will give your social life a turbo boost, line dancing is definitely for you!  This hobby has all the ingredients to become a real passion and you are sure to make plenty of friends.
