Step One: We take some basic information from the Veteran or their family member. This information includes basic contact information including a good email address, proof of service (DD214), and a brief description of why they’re seeking treatment.
Step Two: The information is provided to a local caregiver, who will contact the Veteran directly and schedule an appointment.
Step Three: The Veteran receives the help they need. We continue to maintain contact with the Veteran and their family to ensure their needs are met.
Costs Associated with Treatment
Once the Veteran has received treatment through us, they have nothing to worry about. The care provider bills us directly, and the Veteran will never see a bill for the treatment.
Since the beginning of conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, we have lost over 6,100 combat troops. By comparison, in 2011 alone, we eclipsed that number, losing 8,700 Veterans to suicide. This epidemic is claiming an average of 22 Veteran lives daily, when an average of 5 of those were enrolled in VA treatment programs. The VA cannot handle the need. The American public is almost entirely unaware of the suicide epidemic claiming our Veteran’s lives, or the extent of the unseen injuries sustained by many Veterans. We don’t expect the general public to understand entirely, having never experienced the trauma of war, but we do our best to educate the public about Veteran sacrifice and the cost of defending the nation.
