Not Alone
started in 2008 when a group of warriors and professionals discovered a significant gap in the governmentís capacity to help warriors and their families come home from war. There needed to be a confidential online community where those warriors could congregate to help each other. It's hard to know what normal is. Not Alone is a community of your peers sharing stories of reclaiming their lives after war. Here, you'll listen to others who live the war after the war. You'll find people that get you.
