Lynchburg, VA – “Wives and caretakers of Vietnam veterans came together Thursday for a first ever support group session.

The meeting was held at the Lynchburg Marine Corp. League.

Many women stood up and shared their struggles caring for their disabled veteran.

Issues like filing disability claims to the state, and coping through post traumatic stress disorder.

They say it’s the only opportunity in the area for women to talk about the struggles they face.

Women are very powerful and when you put us together in a small medium or large group we know we can accomplish what we need to accomplish,” said Judy Doering, the coordinator of the group.

The group uses these meetings as a teaching opportunity so women understand how to file the paperwork correctly.

The next meeting is scheduled for October 21st”
