Many Veterans leave the service and find themselves feeling left behind and abandoned. We’d like to think that those we served, those for whom we sacrificed so much, would have our backs as we venture back into their world. They have signs and bumper stickers that say they support us. So why do so many of us end up feeling so hopeless?
It’s up to us.
We who have served are the only ones who know what these brothers and sisters are going through. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard… It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we Veterans are doing everything we can to help lift up our own.
We can’t count on politicians. We can’t count on the media. We can count on each other.
Whether you want to help, or need to get help, the end of this video contains a list of organizations you can contact.
