Here is a shocking & devastating fact you should know!
22 veterans commit suicide in the U.S. every day
Many of these heroes suffered terrible injuries (both physical and emotional) in the wars they fought.
The physical injuries we can see and provide meaningful compassionate assistance.
The emotional injuries like PTSD are not visible but tragically they impair the life of combat veterans to a degree that many turn to drug and alcohol abuse for relief — just to turn off the war in their heads.
Sadly there is no cure for PTSD, TBI and other related brain injuries and managing the traumatic symptoms is a life-long struggle.
The long term effects of drug and alcohol addiction include poverty, homelessness, depression and in some cases, jail or prison.
How horrible that our veterans suffer this way.
Project Help’s mission is to:
- be a lifeline of assistance and support
- lend a shoulder to lean on when they are overwhelmed
- make life a bit brighter when the darkness comes
“I have lived first-hand what they are living in my marriage.I have navigated the waters and come out on top.It was a challenge but persistence and determination can win the battle.”
