Afghanistan: Let's Talk About It:

The news from Afghanistan is triggering a complicated view and flood of emotions for many. Veterans from all eras are reacting to the events in Afghanistan, such as the U.S withdrawal and the takeover by the Taliban.

You are not alone.

Veterans may question the meaning of their service or whether it was worth the sacrifices they made. They may feel more moral distress about experiences they had during their service. It’s normal to feel this way. Talk with your friends and families, reach out to battle buddies, connect with a peer-to-peer network, or sign up for mental health services.

There are a wide-variety of mental health resources and coping strategies available for Veterans here
