If you want to support Afghan war veterans, here's how (Op-Ed)
The fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban has created a level of anxiety for many service members and families who sacrificed a piece of their lives to the military mission over the last 20 years. Watching a news report of a past enemy commandeering U.S. equipment or of a civilian population fleeing can stir feelings and memories you thought were buried or, perhaps, resolved.
If you are troubled by the recent news in Afghanistan or know someone struggling, please understand service members do not have to carry this burden alone. Reach out and have a conversation with a mental health professional, friends and loved ones.
