The American Legion strongly supports the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Vet Centers, community-based facilities with VA programs that provide readjustment counseling to veterans who have served in combat, or who have been victims of military sexual trauma or harassment. All services are free and also available to spouses and children of veterans.
Vet Centers provide a wide range of services that include individual, group, marriage, family and bereavement counseling. They also refer veterans to other services when appropriate, and can help with problems concerning a veteran’s discharge status.
Veterans are not required to be enrolled in VA health care in order to get Vet Center services.
