Injured vets and their families face unique challenges that require innovative solutions. Finding counseling, a job, or just new meaning and purpose.
1% of American citizens serve in the military. But 99% benefit. Our cause is bigger than politics. It’s about helping veterans and their families return home to a community and nation fully prepared to help them. Not just today, or tomorrow, but for the long haul. Just 1% serves. It’s time to repay that loyalty. It’s time to stand up for our heroes.
What’s at Stake?
More than 2.5 million U.S. service members have been deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq since September 11, 2001
About 1.5 million have returned; a million more are coming home
90 percent of today’s service members are surviving their injuries
One of every 50 has sustained a physical combat injury
One in five suffers from Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, or Depression
The number of service members who commit suicide currently outnumbers those killed in actual combat
The good news is, there’s good work being done to help our injured heroes and their families. We’re putting our money behind it.
