Making the Transition to Civilian Life

The VFW has really helped me out a lot with making the rather difficult transition to civilian life. There are lots of different programs and services this organization offers to veterans, but in my opinion this is among the best. They have helped me with finding a job when I really needed it. It can be incredibly difficult to get employment anywhere decent after getting out of the military, so I wasn’t very hopeful at first. But this organization came through for me and got me a great paying job at a local factory, which is where I work now.

A lot of people who get out of the military have many issues with adjusting to life outside of the military, and the VFW has been beyond helpful. I credit them with being responsible for helping me get on my feet when I really needed it. I was very worried for a while because I couldn’t seem to get a job, and I needed a way to feed my family and pay my bills. This organization has done a lot to help military personnel adjust to civilian life in a smooth and effective way.

I do plan on going back to school to earn a degree, which is actually something else that the VFW could help me out with. They provide veterans with test prep assistance for SATs and ACTs. I am incredibly happy that I found this organization because of everything they have done for me, and I feel great about giving back whenever and however I can. I really needed a lot of help when I first got out of the military, and this organization was really there for me in a big way. I simply cannot say enough good about these people.


How the VFW helped me with my PTSD

The VFW has always been incredibly helpful when it came to helping me with my PTSD. I was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder about a year ago, and this organization has been great with helping me to find the right therapist to match my specific needs. They have lots of great resources for veterans who are in need of the same kind of assistance that I am. PTSD is a very serious condition, and it’s definitely something that the VFW recognizes to the fullest extent.

I personally know a lot of other people who have gotten this same type of help from the organization, and I am very happy for them. I am honestly not sure that I would’ve been able to find the right person to get help from on my own, at least not nearly as fast as with their assistance. They gave me the name of a great therapist who specializes in treating veterans with PTSD. Since I have started seeing this therapist I feel a whole lot better overall. There is no question that my overall quality of life has drastically improved, and it is in no small part due to the VFW and all of the help they have provided me with.

One of the very best things that came from my experience in the VFW was getting the right psychiatric help for my issues. While it’s true that there are still a lot of problems that I have to deal with on a regular basis, the therapy has helped me a lot to say the least. This organization is really wonderful about getting veterans the help they need for PTSD and other conditions, both mental and physical. I really don’t know what I would’ve gone without the help of this organization.


How I take care of myself on a regular basis

As a U.S. military veteran who has been diagnosed with PTSD, it is incredibly important that I take very good care of myself on a regular basis. The support and friendships I have gotten as a member of the VFW play a crucial role in maintaining my mental/emotional health. I have come to realize just how important this organization is when it comes to helping me deal with certain challenges as a veteran.

When it comes to taking care of myself physically, I go to the gym 5 days a week to work out. I do both resistance training and cardio exercises, though I’ve been focusing more on weight lifting for the past six months or so. I take a protein workout supplement each day to help build lean muscle and lose the extra weight I have accumulated recently. The protein supplement has helped me out a lot with building muscle fast, and I have seen some extremely noticeable results.

I also take a mood stabilizer supplement each day to help with my depression, which is a direct result from the time I spent serving my country. I have been suffering from depression for quite a while now, which is all the more reason for me to take care of myself. The mood supplement I am currently taking is completely natural, so I don’t have to worry about any negative side-effects like I have experienced with prescription medications in the past.

Over the years I have tried taking anti-depressants that were prescribed to me by doctors, but none of them seemed to work well, or the side-effects were too much for me to handle. I am so glad that I started doing research into these natural supplements because of how much they have helped me overall. I highly recommend that anyone who is struggling with depression at least look into taking a mood stabilizer supplement.

I’ve always tried to find natural ways of dealing with mental and physical issues, and for the most part I have had a tremendous amount of luck. I know that these kinds of supplements aren’t always extremely effective for everyone, but they have helped me more than I can express in words.

While I do still struggle with depression, the mood stabilizer I started taking a few months ago has helped me quite a bit in my daily life. I tried a few different natural supplement products in the past, but I finally found one that is working really well for me now. Even the people closest to me have noticed the hugely positive difference in how I behave on a daily basis. I was a bit skeptical about just how effective natural mood stabilizer and workout supplements would be, but I was pleasantly surprised by the results I got from them.

I would say that the supplements I take on a daily basis play a vital role in keeping me happy and healthy. I am committed to hitting the gym regularly, and I have a few different people (all veterans) that I go with. A friend that I served with in the military initially got me interested in trying these supplements, and I am very glad that I listened to them. I am now a lot healthier, both mentally and physically, than I have been in a very long time.

Getting into resistance training at the gym was another great decision I made for my overall health and well-being. I used to lift weights regularly many years ago when I was in the military, but I kind of just stopped until recently. I am very glad that I have so many fellow veteran friends who are always there to offer me the support and structure I need to stay on track with my physical health. In fact, a lot of the people I have met through the VFW are really into fitness, and I’ve actually seen a number of them at the gym I go to.

Since I had so much success with natural mood stabilizer and workout supplements, I have been trying to get some of my friends to try them as well. I know a lot of veterans who struggle with depression and mood-related issues on a regular basis, and I’d really love to help them in any way I can. I was quite surprised at just how many of the guys I go to the gym with don’t take a supplement of any kind.

The protein workout supplement I am currently on has boosted my gains through the roof, which I am incredibly happy about. I am always looking for new and effective ways to keep myself on track mentally and physically, but these natural supplements have really done wonders for me in many different ways.


Getting the support I need from the VFW

One of the reasons that I love the VFW as an organization so much is because it provides me with a place to come and get support by meeting other people who have had the same kinds of experiences as me. The fact is that most people simply cannot understand what I have been through because they have never served a day in the military.

The people who I talk with at the VFW know exactly how I feel when it comes to my PTSD and the things I have gone through when stationed overseas. The ability to come somewhere and connect with people whom I have so much in common with is a huge relief and a weight off my shoulders.

I am able to share my thoughts, feelings and experiences at VFW meetings with other people who have been through very similar things in the past. It’s a truly amazing feeling to be really understood by others, especially after having so many exchanges and interactions with civilians who cannot relate to me at all.

There is a strong bond I share with my fellow veterans, and the VFW has provided me with a great way to meet many of them. I love listening to the stories of the veterans at the meetings, and having people who will not only listen to what I have to say but also relate to it in a real way. This organization has done so much to support me.


Helping my Fellow Veterans who are in need

The entire purpose of the VFW is to help veterans, and as a part of the organization I feel as though I need to do my part. I have helped a number of my fellow veterans in many different ways, and it always makes me feel good to give back. I feel like just because I myself am a veteran doesn’t mean that I can’t or shouldn’t give back to others who have sacrificed so much to defend our country.

I recently helped to build a veteran named Peter a house for him and his family. I worked with about twenty other people to build the house, and I am very proud of the work we did. Peter and his family were staying at a shelter before we constructed a new home for them. It was one of the prouder and more emotional moments of my life when I saw him and his family walk through the threshold of their new home after all the work had been done.

I also deliver food to disabled veterans in my area every other weekend. While it may seem like somewhat of a small thing, it still makes a huge difference to the people we are helping. I am always looking for new ways to be of assistance to my fellow veterans. Considering just how many former military members there are in need of help, I never have to look very hard to find a way to be of service to them.

With everything that the VFW and veterans I know personally have done to help me, I feel as though it is my responsibility to give back in any way I can. I have been truly moved by all of the help and support this organization and the people in it have given me since I joined. This is really a tight knit community of people who want to help each other as much as possible, and I’m very proud to be a part of it.


Getting Financial Help from the VFW

I have gone through numerous tough financial times since getting out of the military, and the VFW has always been there to help. This organization has provided many veterans with financial grants, and fortunately I am one of them. These grants have helped to keep myself and my family afloat through difficult periods where money was extremely tight. Most people don’t realize just how difficult it can be for veterans to get by after leaving the military.

The VFW has given me $5,000 to help with paying basic day-to-day bills as well as medical bills that have incurred over the past six months due to various health problems. I know a lot of people who have received financial assistance from this organization, and I think it’s a truly great thing.

All of the financial help that I have received from the VFW has gone a long ways towards helping my family through very tough times. I was unemployed for about four months, and this organization was there for me in a big way. I actually came close to losing my home, but thankfully I was given a grant from the VFW. I also received numerous personal donations from fellow veterans I had met over the last year, which I am eternally grateful for.

I simply cannot say enough good things about the VFW because of all the good they have done and continue to do for myself and people like me. I know a lot of people who have also received financial assistance from this organization, and it really helped them out a lot.

The financial assistance that the VFW provides to veterans is one of the best things they do, and I am happy to have benefited from the Unmet Needs program. I was able to get the money I needed quickly and without any hassle, which was both surprising and amazing. I honestly wasn’t sure if I would qualify, but I am incredibly happy that I did.
