Returning Veterans

There are 49,000 to 69,000 veterans returning from overseas this year. Please help me to help them so that they won’t have to go through what I did.
I graduated from my beloved Lubbock High School; was taken immedateIy into the Army of World War II, and dumped into a place of horror, called Dachau. In my last semester at Tech Texas, as an Army Reservist, I hit the beachhead at Inchon Korea with no ammunition, food; water or officers.
In coming back from the Korean War, and it felt like I had come back from the hell of war to the hell of civilian life. I would not seek help of any kind and reached the point that I just didn't care and wanted to end it all. Then I made a fateful call to the Veterans Administration Houston. That one call turned my life around completely and totally.
Those good men and women coming home must not do as I did. Call today. You won’t regret it. I have a good life today, and they can too. Simple but not easy, as we say in the Recovery International psychology groups.
For the VA today, you need to go to the Vet Center website: www.vetcenter.va.gov. I was connected to the Vet Center and its psychologist turned my life around completely, as stated above. If you like, let me know how it goes for you. Email address and telephone number given below.
