Additional Resources

The military services have several programs in place to assist Vietnam-era veterans as well as those retiring from a long military career. In recent years, many government, non-profit and for-profit organizations have started specialized programs to help veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Many of these veterans are not military careerists, but are returning to civilian life after honorably fulfilling their service obligation. Most programs have a special emphasis on assisting veterans with service-related mental or physical disabilities. Here are a few of those resources:
