Have you ever had someone on say to you, “Come on Man!.” Meaning that they may not believe what you are telling them.
It is a common phrase that I have heard from time to time.
Here are some facts about veterans that you may not believe either:
22 veterans take their own lives every day. I didn’t say every year. I said every day. That is appalling! We need to find way to reach out to our brother and sisters from the military.
There are a total of 22 million veterans in all branches of service. 22 million men and women who are putting themselves in harm’s way so that you and I can live in a free country.
There are 4 million veterans disabled. Many have wounds that forces them into wheelchairs, assisted living facilities, and need permanent care every day.
This is the saddest statistic: There are 1/2 million veterans who are homeless and live on the streets. They fought for us, and now they are living day to day in the cold, damp, world as we know it, with only cardboard, or newspapers covering them.
COME ON MAN!!!
Yes, it is hard to believe this is happening in our own country, but it is the truth. These are not made up statistics. These aren’t there to make you ashamed, even though I am. They are there to try to wake all of us up and do something about it.
Victory for Veterans are doing something about it, and you can help. We have started a nonprofit organization that will be raising funds for helping each and every veteran who needs it.
Check out the rest of the site for more information on who we are, and what we plan to do. Our founder Steve Durgin, has a mission, and he won’t stop until his mission is completed. Let’s help him help others.

You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
