Meaningful Conversations for Returning Iraq-Afghanistan Veterans

Vets4Vets pictureJim Driscoll sent me this announcement to share with the network. Sounds like a fantastic program!

Vets4Vets (www.Vets4Vets.US) offers free weekend workshops all over the country where returning Iraq-Afghanistan veterans get the opportunity to share their stories and their feelings about those experiences with others who have served and learn how to set up similar groups in their home communities after the weekend. V4V is building a nonpartisan, confidential peer support community for these vets. Over the last two years, over 500 Iraq-Afghanistan veterans have taken part in 22 weekend workshops. Local groups are already meeting regularly in eights cities across the U.S. with more forming every month. These groups are generally closed to the vets themselves, so the best thing a non-vet can do to support them is to reach out to vets of this era in your community and direct them to our webpage. For more information, please email Vets4Vets@gmail.com or call 520-319-5500.
