It is our mission to end veteran suicide.
Many Americans are unaware of the fact that every single day nearly 20 military veterans are lost to suicide. There are two fundamental reasons for this tragic issue.
The first is because the transition back to “normal life” can often be a difficult journey; even more difficult is for a veteran, trained as a warrior, to acknowledge that they are struggling and need help. One of our goals is to raise awareness about these issues to make civilians and veterans alike understand that it’s ok to ask for help.
The second reason for this problem is because our government programs and facilities have not demonstrated the capacity to meet the needs of our veterans after they leave the military. Thus, our second primary goal is to raise funds to provide veterans with the resources and private support services necessary to facilitate their transition ‘all the way home’.
Operation: Heal Our Heroes has partnered with organizations that can effectively provide the attention and care required for the thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines who have endured and continue to bear the psychological burdens associated with our country’s time at war.
If our efforts can help save the life of just one more of our nation’s heroes, then we have accomplished our goal.
