1-877-WAR-VETS (aka Combat Call Center)
... is an around the clock confidential call center where combat Veterans and their families can call to talk about their military experience or any other issue they are facing in their readjustment to civilian life. The staff is comprised of combat Veterans from several eras as well as family members of combat Veterans. This benefit is prepaid through the Veteran’s military service.
We are a 24/7/365 VA organization, staffed by combat veterans to refer veterans and their families to Vet Centers around the country for readjustment counseling. We also provide peer to peer counseling for when vets are in crisis without suicidal ideation being present such as anniversaries of personal events or when fireworks are going off.
Veterans in need should call us at 877-WAR-VETS or 877-927-8387, or call the Veterans Crisis Line 800-273-8255
Both these services can provide information for veterans and their families for both critical/suicidal calls and those that do not require immediate intervention.
This PSA features Call Center Staff and was created by Kyle Hausmann-Stokes, an Army Veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts.
