to see all the Help You’ve Earned
We know that even though you are home, a part of you will always be “back there”. How do they know?
Because we are combat vets too. And, they are here to help you get back to your best life, FREE and CONFIDENTIALLY.
No matter where or when you served, your fellow veterans thank you for your service. We, more than most, understand that freedom comes at a price and, as someone who has helped pay that price, you have pre-paid for all the benefits you have earned.
Sadly, when we return it does not mark an end to that cost. All too frequently, we come home filled with Anxiety, Relationship Problems, Sleep Problems, Addiction, Flashbacks, Depression, PTSD and we want to Withdraw from a world that no longer makes sense. And many of us don’t know what to do about it. We’ve been living in a culture that promotes silent, stoic acceptance and we don’t want to show or admit we have problems Adjusting To Civilian Life. But there’s just no reason to suffer.
When you were in the service, you had a lot of support, from the Pentagon, down to the buddies in your unit, who had your back just as you had theirs.
Those resources are still yours, in a slightly different form. And there is no shame in reaching out to the those who stand ready to help – almost all of whom are Combat Vets themselves. It is a right that you have earned through your service, through your sacrifice, through the contract you honored as a member of our country’s military.
