THE STORY:

Run Ranger Run  

A team of up to ten individuals will pledge to walk, run and/or ride bicycles a combined total of 565 miles in the month of February (usually 28 days).  They will raise funds for GallantFew and increase awareness for the stated veteran issues.

Veterans continue to battle record high levels of unemployment, under-employment,  homelessness and suicide.  The most recent Department of Labor Statistics from May 2012 show Global War on Terror veterans are 40% more likely to be unemployed than a person who never served.  The VA reports eighteen veterans take their own lives daily, and active duty suicides have averaged one per day this year – a rate unheard of before now. We can make a difference!

About GallantFew

  GallantFew, Inc’s (501(c)3 Non-Profit) mission is to reduce US Army Ranger veteran unemployment, homelessness and eliminate Ranger veteran suicide by a unique program of one-on-one mentoring by a Ranger veteran, now successful in civilian business, with a Ranger veteran just departed active duty.  This effort is called the Darby Project (in honor of WWII’s Darby’s Rangers).  Our dream is to one day be able to assist every honorably discharged veteran from every branch of the service.

Our founder, a veteran, has experienced unemployment. He has fought translating his military skills (Airborne Ranger, infantry company commander and Ranger battalion staff officer) into language appealing to civilian employers. He has experienced the incredible delays in the VA medical system – and he believes we can do better.

GallantFew, Inc., meets these veterans during the process of departing from the military. GallantFew, Inc. coaches them through the transition process, assess their skills, desires and abilities, offer training as necessary, network them professionally and socially back into the community, and will be a source of physical, social, professional and emotional support. Initially we will accomplish this all through volunteers. Ultimately, this program will be funded, staffed, and scaled up to include every veteran of every branch of the military.
