power, I posted to you in the daily check in thread before reading here. I found a group, Vet to Vet, on the internet when my son got in trouble while home on leave from Iraq. They were wonderful. I won't go into details here, but he spent 3 years in prison, and vet to vet called me once a week! They don't just care about the vet, they care about the family too. Hopefully, you have a chapter down where you live. If not, I will try to get the contact number for you. They may know of programs in your State, outside of the VA.
The town I live in used to have an Army fort here. Even though it is now closed, the folks here care so very much about our veterans. There is a plan to reuse part of the old fort as a "Veterans village", to provide housing and a medical facility for those in need.
My son still doesn't talk much about what he experienced. Not about the war, not about prison. I pray for him, and I will add you to my prayers.
