Many of our heroes returning home from war have sacrificed limbs and disfigurement from serious burns to their body with many suffering brain damage and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Then there are the invisible wounds, the mental and emotional pains that drive our heroes to living lives of drug addiction and homelessness. Statistics show an average of 1,000 soldiers a month choosing suicide over living a life of physical pain and disability.
Standing by our Veterans
As a nation, when we send our treasure, our sons and daughters to war, we owe them and their families whatever it takes to help them recover, to rehabilitate, to reintegrate – continually helping them to live lives of purpose, passion and meaning!
