    General Trying To Start Up an Online Support Group for Younger Vet's Partners

    Hi Kerrie-Ann, It's good to have my feelings confirmed about why the PVA is finding it difficult to reach out to the younger demographic among the veterans community. Need to go right now, so will continue this tonight. It took me a long time to begin to get a less dramatic take on the...
