Attention Afghanistan Veterans - Because of what has happened in Afghanistan, you may question the meaning of your service or ask whether it was worth the sacrifices you made. You may feel more moral distress about experiences you had during your service. Just remember, you, like us Vietnam Vets, done the job we were hired and sworn to do.  We served your country with pride, dignity, respect, and, more importantly, honor.  Because of your service to America, we have not had a terrorist attack on American soil for more than 20 years.  That's quite an accomplishment, and you should be proud of your service because America is proud of you.

If you are having trouble coping with this, remember, sometimes it takes the strength of a warrior to reach out for help.  Please talk with your family and friends, reach out to organizations like Battle Buddies, connect with a peer-to-peer network like Vet-to Vet, or Connect with the Veterans Crisis Line to reach caring, qualified responders with the Department of Veterans Affairs.  Many of them are Veterans themselves.  In addition to reaching out to your local Veteran Health Indiana, Veterans are also encouraged to contact any of the following resources:

Veterans Crisis LineIf you have thoughts of suicide, please call 1-800-273-8255, then PRESS 1 or visit http://www.veteranscrisisline.net/. For emergency mental health care, you can also go directly to Indianapolis VA Medical Center,  Emergency Room,  24/7,  regardless of your discharge status or enrollment in other VA health care.  Emergency Dept., (317) 988-2539.

Vet Centers - You can also discuss how you feel with other Veterans in these community-based counseling centers. 70% of Vet Center staff are Veterans. Call 1-877-927-8387 or visit the Vet Center in Indianapolis.
