We are partnering with the Sioux City Vet Center to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and host a free BBQ on Wednesday, June 12 from 11:30-1:00 at Support Siouxland Soldiers, 1551 Indian Hills Dr. Ste 102. The Sioux City Vet Center is a community-based counseling center that provides a wide range of social and psychological services, including professional readjustment counseling to eligible Veterans, active duty service members, including National Guard and Reserve components, and their families. Readjustment counseling is offered to make a successful transition from military to civilian life or after a traumatic event experienced in the military. Individual, group, marriage and family counseling is offered in addition to referral and connection to other VA or community benefits and services. Vet Center counselors and outreach staff, many of whom are Veterans themselves, are experienced and prepared to discuss the tragedies of war, loss, grief and transition after trauma.
