Congressman Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico's Third District highlighted a new Public Service Announcement (PSA) that focuses on the Vet Center Combat Call Center. 1-877-WAR VETS is an around the clock confidential call center where combat veterans and their families can call to talk about their military experience or any other issue they are facing in their readjustment to civilian life.
"The men and women who have served our nation and sacrificed for the safety and security of the American people deserve the best care we have to offer," Congressman Luján said. "It is critical that we provide them with the resources they need when they return home and ensure that they are aware of the services that are available. This call center will help veterans and their families with the challenges they face while offering a supportive ear from fellow veterans who can share their experiences."
The call center is staffed by combat veterans from several eras as well as family members of combat veterans. Click here to watch the PSA, which features call center staff and was created by Army Veteran Kyle Hausmann-Stokes, who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
