You were not alone then, you are not alone now. There are 20 million vets who would give their lives for you. PLEASE, don't take yours.

After a traumatic experience, it's normal to feel frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected. But if the upset doesn't fade and you feel stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories, you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can seem like you'll never get over what happened or feel normal again.
This is why we have created the "buddy-buddy" program.  Veterans like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our nations many conflicts, are available to talk with you openly and privately and help you deal with issues associated with your experience.
