This year, 49,000 to 69,000 veterans will return from overseas.
Many will come right to our area.
I don’t want them to go through the torment that I did.
I felt like I had come home from the hell of the Korean War to the hell of civilian life.
The last thing I wanted to do was seek counseling from a mental health professional.
I reached the point, though, that I just didn’t care. I wanted to end it all.
Instead, I called Veterans Affairs in Houston.
That one call turned my life around 180 degrees. I hope the returning veterans will do likewise.
Call now. Don’t wait until you reach the end.
I repeat, call right now!
You’ll never regret it. A friend came back from Iraq and finally called.
He and I are both living good lives today and so can other returning veterans.
