We are Vet to Vet. We are Veterans committed to helping ourselves and other veterans achieve recovery from the psychiatric and adjustment problems we, as Veterans, face. Through these problems, we can feel disconnected from ourselves and from other people. We can regain a connection with people. We can gain back some of what we lost. This is a process, but if we work at it, we can have a whole new outlook on life, and re-invent ourselves anew

Vet-to-Vet was started in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Moe Armstrong who joined Vinfen, a private, nonprofit human services organization. It has since spread across the United States, and received the attention and the support of the VA Medical Centers, recognized for the integral role of peer support in mental health recovery.
According to Moe Armstrong, our founder, "we are pioneers" in the vet to vet peer facilitator program. We are here for ourselves, and for you, when you are ready for us. Many times a Veteran will not ask for help until he or she is in crisis. We have a common bond. We got into this together and we will get out of it together.
We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. Thank You for Your Service! Let us always remember our Service Men and Women who are currently in harms way protecting us and our freedoms!
Note: We are separate from the VA and if you do not want the VA to know you come to vet to vet meetings they won't know! On the other hand if you need documentation in your VA medical file to show you seek outside help, we can help you get the meeting attendance in your record.
