Free Help For Local Veterans

By  | 

Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 937 wants to bring help to local veterans and their families dealing the Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.

Mike Sutherland is the chairman of Chapter 937's PTSS Committee and says a scheduled group meeting could provide veterans with invaluable knowledge to access resources available to them.

"There's not enough information provided now. And the information that's there is really hard to get to if you don't know the system," Southerland said. "So ,what we're trying to do is help people through this very complicated system at the VA with local assistance. "

The group his hosting a Military Family Support and Information Group Meeting that is free and open to the public. It will be on Thursday, October 11 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 .p.m . at the Red Cross Office located at 4010 Boonville Road.

Anyone who would like to attend the meeting to offer help to service members is encouraged to attend.
