Afghanistan: A message from Women Vets on Point & U.S.VETS

Women Vets on Point is here for you

August 30, 2021

The recent events in Afghanistan have hit hard for many veterans. For women veterans, we are especially aware of the sacrifice of two women service members among the 13 heroes who gave their lives in service to their country last week.

Women Vets on Point is ready to provide the support you need in this moment, and in every moment. We offer no-cost counseling, online support groups and other resources just for women vets.

The following message from U.S.VETS has additional thoughts and resources that you may find helpful in this time.


Twenty years ago, after the devastation of 9/11, America deployed the largest military force in its history. Many of our brothers and sisters volunteered without hesitation and fought courageously for the freedoms of others.

Their service and commitment to our country mattered tremendously to the people in the regions they served and to all of us here at home. That’s why the recent news stories and photos coming from Afghanistan have been especially heartbreaking.

These most recent events have had an emotional impact on many of us, especially those who served, our military spouses, family members and allies. Please know that you are not alone. Many of your friends and colleagues who are veterans know what you’re going through. Talk to your family, connect with a veteran support group, or call a counselor. They are all willing to listen.

Here’s a list of resources available to you right now. Please feel free to reach out to as many as you need:

Stay healthy and well,
