Returning veterans of Iraq/Afghanistan

In the last two years, nearly one million U.S. service-members have served in 
Iraq and Afghanistan.     Regardless of how you may feel about the war, most of 
us agree that those service-members deserve the best possible care and 
treatment our country can provide.

Unfortunately, in some cases, things haven't worked out so well.  Some of our 
service-members have fallen through the cracks, with reports of homelessness, 
trauma and suicide. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, as many 
as 15% of returning service-members from Iraq will suffer from post-traumatic 
stress disorder.  Thousands have been wounded, and those who were killed left 
families behind.

Veterans for Common Sense has made available on the internet, and soon in 
print, a guide for returning veterans to help them navigate the available 
benefits and assistance available.  Our goal is to make it as comprehensive as 
possible, to let returning veterans know of where they can get assistance if 
there are any issues with readjustment on their return home.

The guide also contains a section for people who are looking for ways to 
support the troops, with links to organizations who are directly supporting the 
troops in the field.

We're trying to let as many people as possible know about the guide, and so 
we're sending you this note in the hope that, if you are a veteran, you will 
find it useful, and if not, that you will pass it on.

The guide is available here:


Or on our home page at http://www.veteransforcommonsense.org

We hope you'll visit, and pass this on to friends, family, and others in your 

Thank you,
