As the year has passed I have continued to be impresses with the results the staff are able to obtain when working with Iraq and Afghanistan - Era veterans during their transition back home. As we all know, that transition may take a very long time but having an organization such as Vets 4 Vets available 24 / 7 to assist during the bumps in the road is priceless.

How can anyone write a review about an organization that has saved the lives of so many, and has the potential to change the lives of so many more. I learned about Vets4Vets V4V at a time in my life when the services of such an organization was sorely needed. I have learned that peer support, and the time to tell my story, are invaluable. I have watched first hand the power V4V peer support groups have on those who finally come to one of the workshops. I will continue to participate in such workshops not only as a casual observer but as one who will lead groups discussions, providing that vital peer support all veterans deserve after returning from the rigors of combat. There is no doubt in the mind of this 37 year Marine veteran that the program as presented by V4V is the most powerful ever offered. Semper Fi - Tim Bahr, CWO-4, USMC (Retired / IRR)
