As a disabled and combat Veteran of the U.S. Army, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to "give back" to my fellow Veterans in need. I have experienced the difficulties of war and understand what it's like to struggle when the war is over and you're back in the "civilian world".
I spent my active duty years in Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq. Upon returning to "the world", I began working with troubled youth. I spent 9 years in this field, before moving on to work for a large corporation, where I specialize in crisis management, executive protection and private security. I am also a member of The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
Seeing people struggle in America is a difficult to watch. I think it’s a shame that in a country as great as ours, we have to stand by and witness our fellow Americans struggle .... ESPECIALLY OUR MILITARY VETERANS!! There are over 300,000 homeless Vets, with nearly 1.4 million at risk of becoming homeless. The average for homeless Veterans on the streets is six (6) years. An estimated 460,000 Veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Over 5000 Veterans per year, die by their own hands. All these stats sicken me!! It is my desire to help as many Veterans in Trouble as I can. I need YOUR help to do this. They risked their lives so you didn't have to .... now it's YOUR TURN TO SERVE!!
With that desire in my heart, I founded and preside over ViT - Veterans in Trouble: Your Turn to Serve. We’re all looking to make a difference in our world and I believe that by focusing on Veterans, we can make a substantial impact. 100% of all donations go to Combat Veterans in need. All of my time is completely voluntary, as I refuse to benefit from this in any way ~ other than the peace of mind, of knowing that I can assist my fellow Veterans.
ViT is a true "non-profit" organization. EVERY SINGLE penny donated goes to help a Veteran in need - that sets us apart from others.
It is with heartfelt thanks, that I express my appreciation to all those who have already donated and all of you who plan on donating.
