FELLOW COMBAT VETERANS WILLING TO TALK AND LISTEN TO YOU

If you need assistance, or just want to have someone who will listen and understand what you are going through as a Vietnam Veteran; then, e-mail these volunteer veterans below.  All of them are combat veterans of the Vietnam War; each has gone through their own readjustment period.  Now, they wish to help their brother veterans "come home" again.  They offer no doctrines, only heart felt advice and an understanding that can only come from those who have been there.

We offer this service for free.  We are not professionals and this should not be substituted for that need.  But, for those who need to reach out, we are here for you.  Choose whomever you wish to e-mail.  By following the linked names below you will find a short bio and e-mail address for each of our support network members.   Your message will be responded to.  We ask nothing in return from you.   You will never be asked for any donations or to join any organizations.  You have already paid your dues by being a Veteran!  You are our brothers and we are here for you.

PTSD ALLIANCE VOLUNTEERS

The following are volunteers who are willing to talk to you and give you help.  These volunteers are not professionals.   We are not medical doctors, lawyers, or psychiatric professionals.  We cannot diagnose but we can help provide insight to your situation, befriend you, and if possible help find professional help in your area.   Most volunteers have experienced the same or similar traumas to yours.   We are here to help.   However, we can not guarantee anything other than compassion.

When you seek help is when you stop being a victim and become victimized.
