- Vet-to-Vet is a peer driven support group where veterans can help one another work through the issues frequently experienced as they reintegrate in to civilian life.
- Vet-to-Vet is open to all veterans, regardless of the years of their service, gender, or whether they were in combat or not. All that matters is that you served your country in one way or another.
- Vet-to-Vet is endorsed by the Veterans Administration, but is not part of the VA. Mmeetings are normally overseen by two or more Vet-to-Vet peer facilitators who have been mentored and trained by caring veterans just like themselves and have received peer support group training in VA approved seminars.
If you are a veteran, you belong at Vet-to-Vet! All veterans are welcome and it does not matter what war you were in or not in.
Groups do not exist to discuss or attain a disability rating. Vet to Vet is there to help each other deal with problems adjusting to life after having been in combat or other military trauma. Help is available to deal with problems such as anger, isolation, seclusion, anxiety, depression, and the need to use drugs, alcohol, to escape from these problems. Vet-toVet is caring veterans who are "paying it forward".
