My Name is Kevin Cottrell, I'm an Iraq Veteran from Northern New York. My first time attending a Vets4 Vets workshop was in Sept of 2008 In Stoney Point New York. This was a great experience I meet Able and Johnny from V4Vs. I learned a lot about listening turns in a group and one on one. i learned that i was not alone in the way I was thinking and feeling. I meet 25 different other vets from different areas of the U.S. but we all had the same things in common. I left this workshop with tolls in my tool box that i could use to help me and help others. I returned to college and work with my counselor to start a vets support group and a network of vets on campus. I also took away a network of friends that i can call and talk with on the phone or via email. I have attended several other vet gruops put on by the VA and found them to be less efective in helping me. The greatest outcome from my workshops is the fact I Listen to a fellow Vet and Know that it just helps to listenand aloow them to get rid of that thought that is holding them back.
