The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and The Independence Fund is reuniting Veterans who have experienced some of the toughest combat conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan to engage in dialogue in ways that empower them to improve their overall well-being. The goal of the pilot program, Operation Resiliency, is to use the common bonds of Veterans who served together to facilitate a collective effort to address personal post-military difficulties, and address any lingering effects of trauma before Veterans find themselves in crisis. The first reunion will be in 2019. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
