Vets4Vets
April 1, 2010

Vet4Vets has enable to move forward with my life and to realize thta their those who really care and are aware of veterans who suffer emotional and ohsycholigical issues as a result of serving out great nation in times of peace and combat. The organization made me realize thta I am NOT forgotten and thta their are others out there thta do suffer great emotional and phsycohological issues. I retired from the military and sufferred PTSD and other medical issues as a result of combat and felt alone and frighten and turned to alcohol to deal with my emotions as a result of PTSD. Vets4vets placed me in groups with other vets and made me realize thta their is hope for me and others like me. That their is an organization who truly cares for me. I can honestly say that if it were not for the group retreats, discussion groups, and the ability to share my turmoil and challenges in a quiet and safe environment, I would not be alive and sober today. Vets4vets is an organization that has made a positive and significant impact in life!!
