The Soldier's Project

Shrinkwrapped has informed me about a group he is part of that is offering free services to veterans and their families:

The Soldiers' Project offers free psychological counseling in private offices, with no red tape, a flexible schedule, and no limit to the number of sessions. We also offer free psychological counseling to your extended families (including girlfriends, boyfriends, spouses, children, parents and grandparents) - to help them get through deployment issues, and to reintegrate afterwards, and we offer free therapy to members of bereaved families.

I am not familiar with this project but it sounds good-- you can read more about the project and get a contact number here.

Merry Christmas! Hope everyone is enjoying a fun holiday with family and friends. For those of you who might be alone this Christmas, do something nice for yourself. Cook a nice meal, buy yourself a gift after the holidays, or just kick back and find some peace in your life. If you have spent Christmas alone before, drop a line in the comments about how you made it a pleasant and positive experience (or not!).
