After Active Duty

Military families in your community may need your help or they could fall through the cracks.  There is an increase in suicide and abuse.  There are so many stories in the news, I am not going to repeat them here.  War changes people.  We are not a war-like people.  War came to us at Pearl Harbor and 9/11! 

The Army learned notheing from Viet Nam.  Got to take care of the troops after they get home.  Too many flash backs, and bad experiences.  Killing people and seeing dead bodies effects normal people. 

If you see a person/family in trouble – do something!
