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.

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.
Veterans like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our nations many conflicts, are available to talk with you at VFW Post 6183.  Come, visit with the members at VFW 6183 in Norwood where you will find comrades who have been through several situations similar to yours.  They were once struggling, and perhaps still are in pain as you may be. If you just need to talk, we'll listen.  If you don't want to wait until our next meeting,  please call 704-322-5010....OR
