Veteran Support Resources

Student veterans at PTC have a number of services available to them. Our Student Services area provides full time health facilities and our Counseling Services Center provides an Outreach Counselor who is available five days a week.

We care for the special needs of our Veteran students and are available to help any way we can. In addition, there are a number of organizations that are designed to provide special types of veteran assistance. A number of these resources are listed here:


Fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served.


Transitioning through a Reunion
As service members head home after deployment, they must learn how to transition from deployment to life back home.

 

Operation Homefront
Operation Homefront (OH) provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

 

Battle Buddies
USA BATTLE BUDDIES is a non-profit organization consisting of Veterans helping other Veterans. A "Battle Buddy" is a partner assigned to a fellow soldier in the United States Military. Assigned in pairs, each Battle Buddy is expected to assist his or her partner both in and out of combat. A Battle Buddy can save his fellow soldier's life by noticing his negative thoughts and feelings and intervening to provide help.

 

Vets4Warriors Peer Support Line
The toll free peer support line 1-855-838-8255 (1-855-VET-TALK) is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for National Guard and Reserve service members. The service is staffed entirely by Veterans. The counselors are available to talk or they will work with the caller to obtain support in their local communities for issues that require specific expertise, such as financial counseling, legal advice or medical services.

 

Veteran's History Project
The Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war

 

United States Department of Veterans Affairs
To provide veterans the world-class benefits and services they have earned - and to do so by adhering to the highest standards of compassion, commitment, excellence, professionalism, integrity, accountability, and stewardship.
