A story on NPR features a veteran-to-veteran suicide help line pioneered in New Jersey and successfully adopted a Ft Hood. This is not the only program that taps into the powerful connection veterans share and the help that a combat veteran can provide another. At a recent civilian-veteran dialog, a young woman spoke about the invaluable help she was getting at the recently opened Samaritan Village’s women’s program. At an ArtReach workshop conducted by Emily Nash and Stephanie Wise last March, it was clear that Vietnam vets had a special connection with younger veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. And Veteran’s Sanctuary that is opening in Allentown, PA, will train veterans to help each other.
