The Montgomery County, MD Commission on Veterans Affairs wants you to know that we are here to support you. If you need any support, we have resources for you (Silver Spring Vet Center,  VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Gaithersburg, Serving Together,  Steven A.  Cohen Military Family Clinic at Easterseals Foundation, EveryMind, Montgomery County Crisis Center and others). All of us on the Commission have friends, family, and colleagues who served in Afghanistan or know someone whose life was irrevocably changed by their time or their family/friend member's time there.  We pay special tribute to the Blue Star and Gold Star families. 

Like most in our community, we have followed the fall of Afghanistan in September with concern and grief. We grieve for those Americans who have lost so much, for our allies in Afghanistan, and for those who face impending human rights atrocities. In the wake of so much tragic recent news, from the rise in deaths due to the Delta variant, to the loss of life in Haiti, to the recent deaths by suicide of our Capital Police Officers, and our troops, we are experiencing heightened anxiety and trauma.  If you need to talk, please reach out and you can find resources in the Commission's Veterans Network Directory - Behavioral Health, Counseling & Wellness Supports
