Veteran's Day

Veteran's Day is a day to honor the men and women who have served our country.   Their service and sacrifices forged our country in the Revolutionary War, they shaped our country through the Civil War, and have helped defended and protect countries all over the world. They have built us as a beacon of justice and hope to all the world. They have made the United States of America the best country in the world. We honor them today for their courage and strength as they stood in the gaps for all of our freedoms.

I have been honored to meet and work alongside so many Veterans. I love their honesty and forthright demeanor, and most of all I love how they are always willing to help another Veteran in need. They understand they were part of something bigger than themselves when they served and they continue to live that motto. It endears me to them.
Please take the time to hear Colonel John Garrity's speech at our 15th annual golf outing in September. It is powerful and inspiring.
Brain Treatment in 2020

Your generosity has changed the lives of 47 Veterans this year by putting them through brain treatment. Their results in just 2 weeks have been remarkable. So many of them have been struggling for years and they have found new enthusiasm for their lives and post treatment they are blazing new trails. One young man has stepped into the arena of politics, one has decided to go for his master's degree, another has found the strength to restart a business he had let die. All of them have had improvement in their sleep, and their ability to process their thoughts better. Many have found improvement with their depression, anxiety and stress scores. I believe we have found a very effective tool to combat Veteran suicide. Together, we are making a difference. Thank you all for your partnerships!!   You can see their stories on our YouTube channel.  

Please subscribe to our channel and share the stories of these Veterans! Help show others how you are changing lives with your involvement and generosity.

Mark you calendars for May 17, 2021 for our 16th annual golf outing.  We will be returning to a 2 course event at The Tribute and Old American Golf courses in The Colony, TX.  Details coming soon!

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

What can you do this Giving Tuesday to impact the lives of the Veterans we serve?  Join our monthly giving program, then invite 2 friends to join you.  Together monthly givers help Veterans like Jacob (click to hear donor impact) who struggled with anxiety, balance and other issues.  Treatment provided by the generosity of our donors has changed Jacob's life.
