Vet -to-Vet is trained by the VA, but is not part of the VA. Our groups do not exist to discuss or attain a disability rating. We are here to learn about ourselves, our problems, and how we affect the other people in our lives. We are here to help each other deal with problems adjusting to life after having been in combat or other military trauma. We are here to help each other deal with problems such as anger, isolation, seclusion, anxiety, depression, and the need to use drugs or alcohol to escape from these problems. We are here to help each other re-learn how to function in society, and how to unlearn the things the military has taught us that prevent us from doing that. We are here for fellowship and our mutual benefit.
