THE STORY:

Eric Roberts wrote -

Veterans and friends helping to increase awareness for issues surrounding the transition from active military service to civilian life and working together to prevent veteran suicide.

240,000+ veterans transition out of the military every year. The transition from military to civilian is challenging.

Over 772,000 veterans are currently unemployed.

Over 300,000 homeless veterans are currently sleeping on the streets.

An estimated 460,000 veterans suffer from severe post traumatic stress.

22 veterans kill themselves every day.

These statistics are unacceptable

The Veterans Administration only has resources to help a fraction of Veterans. It is because of this that many veterans who have successfully transitioned have started organizations to help. Proceeds will go to Gallant Few whose mission is to prevent Veteran isolation by connecting new Veterans with hometown Veteran mentors thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
