  1. This is very helpful….There seem to be a lot of concern for the National Guard and Reservist. I do believe that is a big concern. Indiana Veterans Behavioral Health Network. We are reaching out to the rural areas to bridge the gap between the local VA and the Rural community mental health center through tele-health. We are needing health in getting out the word to all rural VSO.

    Thank you,

  2. I have a better understanding and an increased awareness in regards to some of the
    emotional experience military families endure.
