The Vietnam Veterans of America - Chapter 510 in Northern New Jersey, is part of the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA), the largest United States Congressionally Chartered National Service Organization, exclusively devoted to Vietnam and Vietnam Era Veterans. Our goal is to foster, encourage and promote improvement of the condition of Vietnam Veterans and their families. We bring together people, without regard to race, religion, or sex, who shared a common experience and any adult who wants to be an Associate Member to help further the association's goals.

********** ATTENTION ALL VETERANS **********

The VA has just released information regarding the NEW VA "Veterans Choice Card".
In short, the Cards will be made available to Veterans CURRENTLY enrolled in the VA HealthCare System "... as of August 1, 2014 or eligible to enroll as a recently discharged combat veteran ...".
The purpose of the Veterans Choice Card is to provide eligible Veterans with necessary Health Care at non-VA facilities if the Veteran is unable to receive the care at a VA facility within certain criteria (see details in the links below).
• Read a summary about the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 ("Choice Act").
• Read more about the Choice Act, published by the Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs.
• See the presentation made by the VA New England Health Care System (VISN 1) which provides additional details of the Choice Act.
PLEASE NOTE: These documents may take some time to download, so be patient.

Through our associations with VFW Post 6255, American Legion Post #174, DAV, and others, we are open and committed to helping our returning OIF/OEF Veterans as they return Home from the Global War on Terror.

Veterans Affairs Suicide Hotline Begins
To ensure veterans with emotional crises have round-the-clock access to trained professionals, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has begun operation of a national suicide prevention hotline for veterans. To operate the national hotline, VA is partnering with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Veterans can call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) and press "1" to reach the VA hotline, which will be staffed by mental health professionals in Canandaigua, N.Y. who will work closely with local VA mental health providers to help callers.

Help for Veterans returning from the Iraq/Afghan war

Check out Afterdeployment.org* a new wellness resource site developed by DoD and VA Service Members, Veterans, and Military Families. If you've deployed, or know someone who has, you know that spending time in a war zone means being changed in some way. Some of these changes are good. But some of these changes may be causing problems for you or for someone you know. Having problems after a deployment is normal.
