Veterans are NOT a problem or a burden
To their family, friends, or fellow vets. You are the mission of the VA, even when some VA managers forget that and put their interests before yours.
You have experience and skills which can help others. This website was designed, built, and funded by veterans; with the help of others who cared.
You matter. You can help others and make a difference. You just need to accept support from your fellow vets so you can get back into the fight and help others.
Click HERE to get that support. Someone who cares wants to help you get to tomorrow, so you can help others.
You don’t need special training or money to help fellow vets and make a difference. You just have to care about getting your buddy to safety; which means to tomorrow.
Some, or all, of your problems might still be there tomorrow; but tomorrow is another chance to fight the good fight, tell the ones you love how much you care, and help other vets.
We’re all in this together!
In fact, the author of this page is a veteran and a suicide survivor. His work here is his daily ticket to tomorrow.
If you want to help other vets, click HERE to learn how. A new page will open.
In the meantime, while you’re making it to tomorrow; we’re going to encourage the members of the Senate and House of Representatives to enact the MEDIVAC Act, which will require the VA to provide you the care and attention you need to be whole again.
We’re also going to encourage the FBI to investigate the criminal complaints veterans file against VA managers who neglect or abuse veterans and then try to cover up their criminal acts.
We’ve got your back
Your mission is make it to tomorrow and then decide what you want to do with the rest of your life.
