"GallantFew’s 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.
We are living in a time where hundreds of thousands of service members are transitioning to civilian life. Many are transitioning with un-realistic expectations of what life may be like in the world of civilians. As a result, Veterans and/or active service members are taking their own lives at an alarming rate of 22 per day."
