VETERAN OUTREACH

You were not alone then, you are not alone now. There are 20 million vets who would give their lives for you. PLEASE, don't take yours.
 
Have nothing to do on Saturdays? Want to just sit around and chat with other vets? Have questions/want help about your benefits? Coffee and donuts in the morning? Like free stuff? Want to be sure that your family is taken care of? Come on down to our Open House for veterans, at the Ann Arbor VFW at 3230 S Wagner Rd on October 24th between the hours of 10a and 5p.
 
Food and refreshments, benefits reps, Veteran Navigator, legal help, RSVP and Catholic Social Services, and so much more. Everything is free. Be sure to bring your DD 214
Sponsored by the VFW 433 and Am Legion 46.

After a traumatic experience, it's normal to feel frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected. But if the upset doesn't fade and you feel stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories, you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can seem like you'll never get over what happened or feel normal again.
 
This is why we have created the "buddy-buddy" program.  Veterans like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our nations many conflicts, are available to talk with you openly and privately and help you deal with issues associated with your experience.
 
If you are struggling, if you are in pain, if you just need to talk, please call.
