1. Wounds Cause Financial Burden:
Oftentimes after service members are wounded in action, they face a tremendous financial burden that they or their families can’t always handle on their own. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that the system is overburdened and our wounded veterans are simply not getting the care that they need when they need it. That’s why it is important to support organizations like Shootout For Soldiers who can help to provide resources for those veterans in need in order to make their experience even just the littlest bit easier.
2. Roughly 20 Veterans a Day Commit Suicide:
20 veterans a day commit suicide as a result of PTSD from both emotional and physical wounds.
3. They have earned it:
Our veterans have made a great sacrifice, including not only their physical body, but time with their loved ones as well. They have written a check payable up to their own life in order to ensure the safety of the American people and the ability to live in the utmost freedom that this world has to offer.
