Jim Driscoll of Vets4Vets emailed me re: a complimentary reintegration workshop for OEF/OIF veterans taking place in Tucson, AZ from April 27-29, 2007. All expenses are paid (travel, lodging, and meals) for qualifying vets. From their application form:
Vets4Vets is a non-partisan veterans’ peer support organization dedicated to helping Iraq and Afghanistan era veterans feel good about themselves and heal from any negative aspects of service and war. Vets4Vets is a national community of Iraq-era veterans who have served post 9/11.
In weekend workshops, one-on-one’s and local groups, Vets4Vets allows veterans to take equal and uninterrupted turns sharing their experiences and expressing their feelings in a truly confidential setting. Over 250 Iraq-ear veterans have attended one of our eight workshops in the last year. Most of them have returned to their home communities after these workshops and reached out to their peers to begin setting up Vet4Vets projects in local communities around the country.
This workshop is a chance for those who served in theater to tell their stories to other veterans with similar serviced. This workshop will also focus on veterans who are interested in setting up and leading local Vets4Vets support groups.
Local group contact information is available. And if you're a non-veteran who would like to lend support in some way, consider donating to Vets4Vets. They're doing a great thing here...
