Struggling With The News? We Can Help

Disturbing and graphic footage of the situation in Afghanistan was opened up old wounds for our veteran and active service communities and their loved ones.

You are not alone.

Veterans may question the meaning of their service or whether it was worth the sacrifices they made. They may feel more moral distress about experiences they had during their service. It’s normal to feel this way. Talk with your friends and families, reach out to battle buddies, connect with a peer-to-peer network, or sign up for mental health services. Scroll down for a list common reactions and coping advice provided to us by the Gulf Coast Veterans Health System.
