Vietnam Veterans of America - Chapter 510
The Vietnam Veterans of America - Chapter 510 in Northern New Jersey, is part of
the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA)
the largest United States Congressionally Chartered National Service Organization,
exclusively devoted to Vietnam and Vietnam Era Veterans. Our goal is to foster,
encourage and promote improvement of the condition of Vietnam Veterans and their
families. We bring together people, without regard to race, religion, or sex, who
shared a common experience and any adult who wants to be an Associate Member to
help further the association's goals.
Through our associations with VFW
, American Legion Post #174, DAV, and others, we are open and committed to helping our returning OIF/OEF Veterans as they return Home from the
Global War on Terror. If you are an OIF/OEF Veteran and need some help, or guidance through the VA maze, come to one of our meetings and we'll do our best to help you!

To ensure veterans with emotional crises have round-the-clock access to trained professionals, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has begun operation of a national suicide prevention hotline for veterans. To operate the national hotline, VA is partnering with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Veterans can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and press "1" to reach the VA hotline, which will be staffed by mental health professionals in Canandaigua, N.Y. who will work closely with local VA mental health providers to help callers.

If you've deployed, or know someone who has, you know that spending time in a war zone means being changed in some way. Some of these changes are good. But some of these changes may be causing problems for you or for someone you know. Having problems after a deployment is normal.
