i exist! I'm not expendable!
We Veterans can become invisible very quickly due to multiple reasons. Life can deal us a hand that may prove difficult without the appropriate support. Though there are quite a vast array of resources available to Veterans, it is often a challenge to determine where to start.
It has been my experience that the initial steps require some form of self actualization. In order to recognize self worth and value as a human being, a journey will have to ensue and the path may traverse some of the options I've listed below. As a Chaplain with the American Legion, I listen to the Veteran and act as a conduit to whichever path and organization that may help them.
