Veterans Assistance Project
The dangers facing our veterans who have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan don’t disappear once the troops return home. Because of multiple deployments, stigma associated with seeking treatment, and the nature of insurgent warfare, many veterans transitioning back to civilian life carry deep psychological and physical wounds. Army officials have just confirmed the “terrifying” news that last month, more soldiers have killed themselves than have died in combat.
The CJC stands ready to provide advocacy before the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Social Security Administration to assist these wounded warriors in obtaining some measure of financial stability while they try to put their lives back together. This may mean representing individuals in disability proceedings, facilitating referrals to other service providers, serving as a clearinghouse for veterans, their families and service providers, or simply by keeping this issue front and center through our website and other media. No matter what our political beliefs are concerning the war, we can all come together to offer support to the men and women our country sent to fight a new kind of war, one that has left many of them hopeless, vulnerable — but still proud.
Those who have been denied benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, or think they may otherwise qualify for benefits, are encouraged to contact the Community Justice Center to determine eligibility for our services, by calling 609.218.5120 or by completing and mailing our Referral Form.
