    There are a couple of new organizations up and running for vets returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. Both provide resources for veterans, their friends and families...

    Community of Vets looks to all vets, with an emphasis on communications and support by veterans, for veterans/

    Support Your Vet looks to the friends and families of vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and provides resources for helping vets and their families transition back to civilian life.

    You are not alone, and thanks for all you've done.

    Thank you for posting this. It is important that all of the vets know how much we appreciate their sacrifices.

    Be careful of alleged "Veterans" organizations that offer nothing but "communications and support". The communications might consist of anti-American propaganda and the "support" might be anything from prostitution to drugs. Be aware that there are dozens of American "intelligence networks" that have nothing better to do than monitor the activities of combat Veterans which the government has determined to be potential "threats" to National security. Don't jeopardize your future by getting involved with unaffiliated alleged "veteran support groups".
