I’ve just learned of another important resource for our combat vets and their families.
Combat Vets Helping Combat Vets (CVHCV) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping Combat Veterans–individuals who operated in theatre, on the ground, and outside the wire in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Their organizational focus is with this group of Veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in addition to other physical and mental injuries as a consequence of their service in a combat zone.
They specialize in Veterans Administration disability compensation and Federal Social Security Disability. They are a ‘one stop shop’ that provides all these services in one day!!
CVHCV will fill all paperwork/online forms out for the Veteran, follow up on the case status for the Veteran, and coordinate with other organizations (DAV, VFW, VA, etc) as needed. In addition, they seek out Veterans to attempt to put these mechanisms in motion due to the fact that most Veterans do not seek help until they manifest extreme PTSD and are suicidal/homicidal, arrested, etc.
This entire effort is to achieve one goal: to get Veterans in treatment immediately, before they get into legal trouble, harm themselves or others, commit suicide, or continue to psychologically and spiritually suffer and struggle due to their combat experience. They provide this at no cost to the Veteran.
Currently, there is no other organization which does this and they are proud to be able to help.

They are also on Facebook.
I am so happy that I’ve found out about this amazing resource, and I hope those of you in need, will reach out and contact them.
