Veterans Respond To Kabul Attacks

(Salem, OR)  --  Oregon military veterans who served in the Middle East are upset watching the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban and the terrorist attacks around the airport in Kabul.  Oregon Department of Veterans Affairs Director Kelly Fitzpatrick says Vietnam-era veterans are comparing it to the fall of Saigon in 1975.  She says it's having a terrible affect on their mental health.  Fitzpatrick encourages them to lean on each other and ask for help.  Oregon has a network of veteran service offices across the state and on tribal lands.  Veterans who need someone to talk to can call the Veterans Crisis Line at 800-273-8255.
