Comrades--need to talk with someone? Our Chaplain has a special message for you. Read on...

Dear fellow Members,
        In my role as Chaplain for the Post, I would like to let you know that I am willing to visit any home-bound member who would like some company and maybe share a cup of coffee. 
I am a Eucharistic Minster for the Catholic Church as well, and could provide communion for any member wishing to receive it. 
I can be reached by e-mail at or phone 860-568-8272.
Wishing You All Well,
Dan Lareau
Chaplain, Post 2083

You were not alone then, you are not alone now. There are 20 million vets who would give their lives for you. PLEASE, don't take yours.

After a traumatic experience, it's normal to feel frightened, sad, anxious, and disconnected. But if the upset doesn't fade and you feel stuck with a constant sense of danger and painful memories, you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It can seem like you'll never get over what happened or feel normal again.
This is why we have created the "buddy-buddy" program.  Veterans like you, that have shared a similar experience or trauma in one of our nations many conflicts, are available to talk with you openly and privately and help you deal with issues associated with your experience.
If you are struggling, if you are in pain, if you just need to talk, please call.
