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.
This is why we have created the "buddy-buddy" program.  Veterans like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our nations many conflicts, are available to talk with you openly and privately and help you deal with issues associated with your experience.
If you are struggling, if you are in pain, if you just need to talk, please call.

GA War Veterans Nursing Home needs supplies - keep it coming
- There is a Blue Barrel in the Canteen for Donations-

Their need never ends, I hope your generosity will not either. We will continue to support our Brothers and Sisters at  the Blue Goose for the years to come.

They are specifically asking for the following items:
Denture Cream
Skid Resistant Socks- Need to have a rubber bottom, regular socks are not allowed.
Shampoo and Conditioners
Body Wash
Razors- these get discarded after 2 uses, so inexpensive razors are fine.
Shaving Cream
Brand names do not matter, if it helps your dollar go farther, buy the less expensive brand.
