Soldier Suicide Destroys Veteran Families. Not On Our Watch.

Our Veterans are killing themselves in record numbers mostly due to PTSD. An overmatched VA can’t take care of them or their families. We will.

 

 

Soldier suicide leaves Veteran families with thousands of dollars of bills unpaid, mostly bank loans.

 

 

 

We are the only nonprofit standing with the families after a veteran suicide. Stand with us.

Our Mission: Become the preferred channel for donors, advocates and volunteers who care about veteran families left behind after a soldier suicide.

The families are all alone in their grief, sadness and

financial burden that was not of their making.

Give today whatever you can.

I would like to thank you for all that you do.  I am truly thankful for your dedication to knowing the problem and trying to make others aware of the tragedy soldiers & their families endure. It has really, really been a hard road.  I wish every day that Cedrick was here and I was the one God called. So sad.

Twenty Suicides Every Day *

Active duty soldier suicides are covered by government-issued life insurance policy up to $400,000.**  Most older vets aren’t as prepared. Neither are the families.

Despite their good intentions, the Veterans Administration support and services fall short. Their families are left with broken hearts and huge financial burdens that aren’t of their making.**** Your donation is their silver lining. Please give today. 

The average funeral costs $15,000. Veterans Administration death benefits range from $600 – $2,000. Unfortunately, most veterans who commit soldier suicides have fallen through the cracks so that even these minimal benefits aren’t available to them.

With your help, we will fill that gap.

Your Purchase or Donation Provides these Services:

Funeral Costs

Most veteran suicides are caused by influences far from the battlefield of service. Most were living in hard times and these costs are overwhelming to their survivors. They often have unfinished business that needs taken care of.

Memorial Page

Having a place to memorialize their family members is sometimes the best comfort we can give. Maybe it helps with the grieving process and allows some light to shine in their time of darkness. We’d like that very much.

Awareness

We are currently spending $6,ooo/month in Google ads to get suicide related information into the hands of those in need. The survivors need our help and we want people to be aware of them.

Networking

We are building a national database of the soldiers and their families impacted by soldier suicide. By connecting the families and survivors, we can help in ways that money, time and awareness just can’t.

VA Myths

 

The VA doesn't pay for funerals, caskets, cremation, bodies being flown home, or headstones. Veterans get a plot in a national cemetery, a marker and a ceremony.
